Social and Emotional Learning

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is an integral part of education and human development. SEL is the process through which all young people and adults acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions and achieve personal and collective goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions.


Our school is committed to integrating SEL lessons and strategies into academic instruction and learning by providing opportunities for students to practice and reflect on social and emotional competencies such as self-awareness, relationship skills, perspective-taking, and, most importantly, developing a growth mindset.
