Social/Emotional Health and Wellness
Building a Strong Culture, Climate, and Community
Our schools provide a safe and inclusive environment for students to develop socially and emotionally. Students are provided social-emotional development daily through goal setting, celebrating accomplishments, and feeling a sense of ownership of their education. We support our students through a trauma-responsive and healing-centered approach that leaves room to grow and flourish. We use restorative practices, which emphasizes things like the use of “virtuous language”, and building community through “circling up” for meaningful, honest conversations to build and repair trust and understanding in our classrooms and schools.
We recognize the vital role of solid relationships in the development of students. Our staff, students, and teachers have positive, trusting relationships that create a sense of belonging and community. With this support and trust, students make decisions about their education, the communities they live in, and their future. Through conversation, study, and action, we encourage exploring issues surrounding social justice, equity, race, and identity.
To prepare our students wherever their path leads them, our education extends beyond the classroom to include the community, athletics, arts, and other endeavors.
