As we prepare our students for success in college or careers,
it is critical that elementary, middle, and high schools adopt and adapt a well-rounded philosophy towards academic, social-emotional, and human development.
Many students spend roughly half of their waking hours on a school campus (8am - 4pm).
Students learn more than academics on a school campus. They develop friendships, mentors, study skills as well as life skills on a school campus.
It is important that educators not only serve to improve student academic success, but in order to do so must equally improve student social-emotional and human development in ways that help students take ownership of their learning - and their future.
