CHARACTER & VALUES Finding the sometimes-elusive balance between “warm and demanding” is a challenge we make to ourselves every day. We recognize one cannot exist without the other, and the students and families we serve deserve no less.
PREVENTIVE APPROACH We believe the problem avoided in the first place is the one less likely to occur in the future. “Preventive Practices” finds an analogy in Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports becoming more prevalent in better performing schools nationally.
TEAMWORK A culture of “teamwork” permeates our approach as we understand children succeed in education when all stakeholders, including families, teachers, administrators, and clinical professionals, work together strategically, meaningfully and effectively.
HIGH EXPECTATIONS Research tells us that our expectations early in life often influence the degree to which we actually achieve later on. We have high expectations for the students we serve, as well as for ourselves as professionals. A goal so established often determines the outcome, and great care is taken to ensure high standards permeate everything we do.
