Defenses of Learning


Senior Josie Harniman after completing her Defense of Learning.

On February 8th, 80 seniors completed their Defenses of Learning as the culmination of their semester-long course centered around their Profile Project.

These students presented their Defenses of Learning to a panel of teachers and administrators. The panelists ask questions, offer feedback, and decide if a student passes, exceeds expectations, or goes back to complete the project and re-submit.

What’s next: The remainder of the senior class will complete their Defenses in June.

  • Why it matters: This unique-to-Ramsey experience offers students the opportunity to create a project that shows strong evidence of their content mastery and skills, and also their attributes and habits of mind that they’ve developed as Ramsey students.
