Founded in 1926, Wooster School has a long history of putting students and their learning at the center of all that they do. As a member of the Mastery Transcript Consortium, Wooster is among a number of forward-thinking schools collaborating to create a high school transcript that reflects the unique skills, strengths, and interests of each learner. Committed to making learning personal, meaningful, visible, and fun, Wooster is partnering with Learner-Centered Collaborative and is using the Altitude Learning platform to facilitate their continued progress towards more learner-centered, competency-based education.
