This month is short due to spring break, but we still have great learning happening!
Students in Urban Research and Design spent the first two trimesters exploring the built environment.

Michele Farrell reflects on her experience of introducing computer animation to her students in graphic art.
Our sixth graders participated in workshop with a local illustrator to prepare them for the creation of their own graphic stories while our Upper School students tested their interactive program at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh.
At Winchester Thurston we believe that innovative programming is what keeps our students engaged year after year. City as Our Campus provides real-world learning by connecting students to their communities. In today’s world, classrooms aren’t the only place where learning takes place. Libraries, museums, businesses, and even the digital space have a place in the modern learning ecosystem.
