• Student Leadership

    Our school’s vision is to have students leading their own learning and designing their own pathways to successful futures. In reality, this looks like a lot of support from our staff in learning how to set goals, reflect on lessons learned, and make adjustments as needed. Students help to lead our school and their peers in many ways, both in our school and in our local community.

    School-Based Leadership

    • Student Council. The Student Council is an elected body of students representing every grade level.  Student Council members are responsible for serving on either 360’s Leadership Team or the 360/JSEC Ambassadors Team.  Duties include liaising with Hubs to understand students’ needs and concerns, fundraising, student recruitment, school improvement, and community building. In the 2018-2019 year we will be partnering with the RI’s Secretary of State office’s new high school government elections program where 360 students will use the state’s actual voting machines for our Student Council elections.
    • Student-Led Squads or "Wolfpacks." 360 assembles squads to take on specific roles in our community. We refer to them as Wolfpacks in reference to our school mascot, the wolf. Current Wolfpacks include our Interpretation Wolfpack and Stage Crew Wolfpack. We have plans to develop a Professional Development Wolfpack and Restorative Practices Wolfpack.
    • Everyday Leadership. Whether it’s taking a risk to speak up in class, being an upstander during a student conflict during passing time, or sharing an innovative idea to improve our school community, we support every 360 student to explore and develop their unique leadership identities in formal and informal ways.

    Community-Based Leadership

    • RIDE Student Advisory Council. Each high school in RI has the opportunity to select a student to represent them on a student advisory group which meets monthly to provide feedback and advice to the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE).
    • Congressional Youth Advisory Council. Each high school in RI has the opportunity to select one junior to serve on a student advisory group which meets 2-3 times/ear to discuss public policy issues that affect young people in RI.
