Whole Person Approach
The Heart of Learning
Our whole-person approach incorporates Emotional Intelligence, or EQ (Emotional Quotient) with cognitive higher-order thinking and the relevant skills that are needed.
Emotional Intelligence, or EQ, is attained through socio-emotional learning – when students are connected to their own emotions as part of the learning process.
Emotional Intelligence, EQ, is the critical factor that differentiates star performers in success in life.
And, it is more critical now than ever before - that our students be equipped with EQ for today's and tomorrow's challenges.
Neuroscience has proven that Emotion is essential to learning - emotionally connected learning results in deeper cognition and better grades.
Emotional Intelligence is weaved into our WHOLE PERSON approach through our 4A's of Socio-Emotional Learning.
HEART, MIND & LANGUAGE
Learning becomes meaningful, when our students have the confidence in who they are and what they stand for, they have a personal voice that communicates clearly, a strong conviction to what and why they are learning, and the courage to take risks to create and persevere despite the odds.
