MindUP™

Preparing Global Thinkers for a Multicultural World

We are also concerned with our young scholar's social and emotional growth and development thus educating the "whole child." In 2012, our school was selected to participate in the Hawn Foundation's signature educational initiative MindUP™. MindUP™ teaches social and emotional learning skills that link cognitive neuroscience, positive psychology and mindful awareness training utilizing a brain centric approach. Our classes throughout the school day take "brain breaks".

The MindUP™ curriculum helps children:

  • Improve focus, concentration, and academic performance
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Handle peer-to-peer conflicts
  • Manage emotions and reactions
  • Develop greater empathy toward others
  • Choose optimism
