Social Emotional Learning

We believe that students’ social-emotional development is just as important to their education and future success as their academic development. Our teachers utilize a Responsive Classroom approach to build a strong sense of collaboration and community in the classroom.

Students work with teachers at the start of the school year to collaboratively set goals and guidelines for how they will learn, grow, and work together throughout the year to come.

Students explore core Social-Emotional Learning concepts each month. Each year, teachers build and expand upon the tools and strategies introduced to meet the ever-evolving developmental, social, and cognitive needs of students.       

Learning About Ourselves and Others     

Community building takes place across the grade levels through our Learning Buddy Program and Assemblies. Students are partnered with a "buddy" from another grade to build connections and friendships throughout the school. Once each month the entire school community gathers in the gym for an all-school assembly. These assemblies center around our monthly Social-Emotional Learning theme and are lead by our upper school Leadership class. Secondary School also meets for a monthly assembly that highlights school news and classroom learning.
