Profile of a Graduate Update

We are very excited to be into the first full year of implementation of our Profile of a Triton Graduate. If you recall, the Profile of a Graduate is our locally developed approach to what it means to be a graduate of Triton High School. We have incorporated many principles and competencies designed to help all students develop the skills necessary for success in college, in a career, and most importantly in life. The Profile of a Graduate is designed around a community-engaged process to create a beacon for future educational strategic planning. It presents a clear visualization of priority goals for teaching and learning that can be easily communicated to students, parents, and staff to align collective efforts.


This year we are incorporating direct lessons to teach and model each Profile of a Graduate Competency. We are also working hard to recognize our students that demonstrate excellence in these competency areas. One time per month we have a recognition breakfast where we honor students and staff that continue to demonstrate great work in our profile competency areas. The students pictured below were honored for demonstrating and modeling excellent Problem Solving skills.
