The Importance of “Conference”

Recent studies show students who feel connected to their school, teachers, and school community find greater success. At The Winchendon School, we see faculty as mentors and provide opportunities for students to connect with classmates and teachers during “Conference.” Often referred to as being similar to college “Office Hours” – students can work out that calculus problem that got away from them, outline their next essay, start homework, or meet with other students to work on assigned small group projects. What does Conference look like? It looks different for each student. Here’s what it looked like recently on our NYC campus.
