Social and Emotional Learning (SEL)

Social and emotional learning is a process for helping children and even adults develop the fundamental skills for life effectiveness. These are the skills we all need to handle ourselves, our relationships, and our work, effectively and ethically. They include: Responsible Decision-making, Self Awareness, Social Awareness, Self Management, and Relationship Skills.

These skills are taught through the Health Education curriculum and through the Responsive Classroom morning meetings in the elementary schools and Developmental Designs Advisory in the Upper Campuses. These skills are also embedded in the Responsive Classroom and Developmental Designs instructional techniques used by our elementary and Upper Campus teachers.  For more information:
