Student Learning Expectations

School-wide Learning Expectations (SLEs) are statements of what a student should know, understand, value, and be able to do by graduation. These learning outcomes are collaboratively developed and represent the focus of the entire school community.

At St. John Bosco we use the acronym LASER to help draw the students’ attention to the ultimate goals of their time at St. John Bosco. Each student at St. John Bosco recognizes his or her rights and responsibilities as an active participant in our faith community and witnesses and learns to exemplify the LASER skills:
