While 100 Warhill High School freshmen spent the last year learning physics and humanities in a new non-traditional format, they themselves were being studied.
For the inaugural year of Warhill's Pathways Project, an eight-person team of researchers from the College of William and Mary, which helped design the program, tracked the program's progress.
"I thought the first year was very successful. … We're excited about the results William and Mary was able to document," said Jeffery Carroll, Warhill's former principal who was promoted to assistant superintendent earlier this year. "I look forward to what we can come up with for year two."
