On Friday, March 25, Vancouver Public Schools Superintendent Steve Webb will host his last patron tour of the 2015–2016 school year. The tour will provide an in-depth look at the dynamic learning opportunities at Columbia River High School and Discovery Middle School.

Both schools will showcase applications of the district’s strategic plan, Design II, and commitment to preparing students for college, careers and life. The tour of Columbia River High School will highlight the International Baccalaureate program, one-to-one technology use and an early childhood learning program led by Columbia River students.

At Discovery, visitors will see the Middle Years Programme, the Advancement Via Individual Determination college-readiness program and the school’s Family-Community Resource Center, along with other classes.

The free tour will begin and end at the Bates Center for Educational Leadership, 2921 Falk Rd. The tour starts at 8:30 a.m. and concludes at 1 p.m. After visiting Columbia River and Discovery, guests have the option of enjoying a student musical performance and a delicious lunch prepared by culinary arts students at the Bates Center. Lunch is available for $4 per person.
