Social-Emotional Learning

Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) provides a foundation for safe and positive learning and enhances a student's ability to succeed in school, career, and life. Children learn these skills in a variety of ways, including the behavior they see modeled by the adults in their lives, but SEL lessons can also be taught explicitly in the classroom in much the same way as other subject areas.

Our SEL curriculum teaches students skills to:

  • Control impulses
  • Communicate clearly and assertively
  • Maintain cooperative relationships
  • Make responsible decisions
  • Solve problems effectively
  • Recognize emotions in oneself and others
  • Manage strong emotions
  • Have empathy for others
