The Power of Social and Emotional Learning is in the Whole Community

  • What do young people and adults need in order to learn and thrive here?
  • What do we want all students to know and be able to do when they leave our school?
  • What kind of social, emotional, and academic skill-building is most important in supporting our students to reach their full potential?
  1. The school should foster compassion and respect by teaching and practicing social and emotional competencies.
  2. The school should support students in developing skills and facilitating opportunities for students to contribute to positive change locally and globally.
