We aim to improve the overall socio-emotional health of our student body. School
climate students are required to reflect, survey, provide feedback, modify the
school culture, and promote school spirit. Our students will develop personal independence, innovation and leadership skills as they brainstorm, communicate, and
execute plans to improve the school’s social environment. The class creates positive and informative posters, works on social life activities for the student body,
and acknowledges the different characteristics of strong leadership among their
peers and within our community.
