Whittier's MCAS Enrichment Program has been developed to improve student performance on the MCAS. Whittier has assumed a proactive role in this endeavor. Our goal is to work with students to develop the skills necessary for successful MCAS results.
We offer after-school and summer programs as well as tutoring in English, science and math during the school year to ensure that students have the skills they need to succeed on the statewide test necessary to earn a high school diploma.
Whittier's decision to be a 1:1 iPad school is partly driven by the fact that the next generation MCAS (MCAS 2.0) is a test that is given online. We are preparing our students for this transition by utilizing their iPad's every day, increasing their comfort and familiarity with the tools that will be used when this test becomes mandated for graduation.
