Unique to Wolcott, Learning Strategies is a required course that meets as often as other academic classes, through all four years of high school. Guided by a Learning Specialist, students meet in small groups and individually to develop valuable organizational, testing, and study skills. Learning Specialists also strategize with other faculty to make learning meaningful.
