The Learner Profile is a comprehensive framework developed by the Laguna Beach Unified School District, focusing on shaping students into engaged, productive citizens. This initiative, born from two and a half years of discussions with educators, parents, community members, and students, defines key student outcomes beyond academic achievements. It emphasizes the importance of creating meaningful learning experiences centered around the students, aiming not just at academic success but at nurturing individuals who contribute positively to society.
Our students are taught how to thrive. We ensure that every student masters the skills needed for success. They learn the importance of teamwork, how to tackle challenges, empathy, creativity, problem-solving, and more. These are the guiding principles that prepare our students to take on the world. This is our Framework for the Future.
The outer circle represents the four core learning experiences we use to educate our students.
Learning is co-constructed based on each learner’s unique strengths, skills, interests, and needs.
Learning is driven by evidence-based instruction, assessment, and feedback cycle based on progress toward desired knowledge, skills, and dispositions.
Meaningful, relevant learning grounded in real-world challenges and applications for authentic audiences.
Equitable and Inclusive
Learning communities are collaborative and culturally relevant, where every learner feels they belong and can tap into their full potential, contributing to the collective success of their community.
