WHOLE CHILD APPROACH
The Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) defines the Whole Child Approach as “an effort to transition from a focus on narrowly defined academic achievement to one that promotes the long-term development and success of all children.” Our goal as a greater school community is to ensure that every student is healthy, safe, engaged, supported and challenged (ASCD).
Our approach to educating the whole child centers on three key facets that work collaboratively and in a coordinated way to attend “to cognitive, social, emotional, physical and talent development of children” (Kochhar Bryant & Heishman, 2010). Academic offerings are personalized in such a way that ensures all students are able to access grade level content where they see themselves in the curriculum and are provided opportunities to engage in learning that is meaningful. Social/emotional education inspires our young people’s compassion, self-awareness and empathy for others. Finally, our two generation supports brings together a personalized set of local resources to wrap around both the child and their family to help them feel safe, healthy and supported.
