Leland and Gray Programs on BCTV

Journey East Reflections

Journey East is an Asian studies immersion program here at Leland and Gray.

Tom Connor, the founder of Journey East, asked the alum of the program to write a reflection on how the program has affected their lives.

The Journey East Program, initially funded by the Freeman Foundation and with major support from the University of Vermont’s award winning Asian Studies Outreach Program, was created at Leland and Gray in 2000. Over 250 students from host Leland and Gray and area schools including Brattleboro, Twin Valley, Burr and Burton, Green Mountain, The Compass School, Bellow Falls and others have participated. Over 40 students from the aforementioned schools have brought their energy and talents to the high school in previous years, enriching the program and their home schools and becoming valued members of the Journey East community.

What is the Parent Advisory?

Parent Advisory was formed in September 2010 to allow for parent input and feedback to Leland & Gray administrators, faculty, and staff with the goal of improving academic life. The Advisory meets with Dr. Dorfman to discuss issues such as:

  • The effectiveness of block scheduling
  • Structure and effectiveness of parent conferences
  • Increase of academic rigor
  • Grant opportunities for the school, such as the 21st Century grant

 The Advisory is not a forum to discuss individual parental concerns regarding teachers or students. Rather, this is an opportunity to collaborate on the overall academic vision of the school. Please join our meetings each month.

Meetings are scheduled for the 3rd Tuesday of each month.
