Everybody likes being first, and this week thirteen Williamstown Middle High School students had their chance at the prized spot.
“I don’t think in the beginning these students knew they were the pacesetters they are,” said Williamstown Middle High School teacher Sandy Fitzmorris. “But I think today they know they’ve made a real mark on education in Vermont.”
Hallmarks of the CCV experience are small classes and practicing professional instructors who bring real-world applications to their teaching. This spring CCV offers 25 art courses at centers throughout the state and online. Students who enroll in the “introduction” classes explore a new area of study, and often also get to experience how working artists apply their craft in daily life.
In November students in Melissa Elwell’s CCV-Brattleboro Introduction to Criminal Justice class were visited by Archer Mayor, author of the bestselling series of Vermont-based police novels.
