School Climate

Character Education and Project Wisdom


Research shows that morale directly impacts achievement. When teachers and students work in a positive school culture, students learn more effectively and teacher retention improves. Effective schools create a strong sense of community, which in turn fosters higher levels of student learning.

Although these articles were written some years back, they have been recently reviewed by a subject matter expert for relevancy and are as important today as ever before. The bottom line? The focused and intentional development of character, as well as social and emotional development, produces outstanding results, transforming individual lives as well as entire campuses.

"The program has definitely had a positive impact on our school climate and the way kids speak and treat each other.

Laurie, High School Principal -
Minnesota
