Through our emphasis on Social Emotional Supports we strive for our students to develop the social-emotional and regulation skills: character and executive function skills of initiative, compassion, empathy, flexibility, gratitude, cooperation, kindness, perseverance, humility and patience so they can have meaningful and productive lives independent of the outcomes historically predicted by race, gender and socio-economic status.
