Classroom Guidelines

Our Classroom guidelines are student created following the Responsive Classroom components:

Responsive Classroom
Six Key Components of the Responsive Classroom

The Responsive Classroom is based on sound principles of Child Development theory and on a commitment to teach the social skills of CARES: Cooperation, Assertion, Responsibility, Empathy, and Self-control.
  • Morning Meeting which provides students daily opportunity to practice greetings, conversation, and activities and motivates them to meet the academic challenges of the day ahead
  • Rules and Logical Consequences, which are generated, modeled, and role-played with students, and become a cornerstone of classroom life
  • Guided Discovery of learning materials, areas of the room, and routines—this is a technique that moves students through a deliberate and careful introduction to new experiences; there is no assumption that students already know how to do something before they begin
  • Classroom Organization that provides active interest areas for students, space for student-created displays of work, and an appropriate mix of whole-class, group, and individual instruction
  • Academic Choice for all students every day, in which they must take control of their own learning in a meaningful way, both individually and cooperatively
  • Assessment and Reporting to parents, an evolving process of mutual communication and understand
