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:
- Develop greater empathy toward others
- Choose optimism
