School Culture and Climate

For some students who have struggled in the past, school can be a place where they don’t feel they belong. They may not have a positive view of themselves as a learner or have trouble saying how their classwork will help them in the future.

When it comes to creating environments that motivate students, school culture matters. And when a school culture supports students to develop positive Learning Mindsets about themselves as learners, fosters Strength-Based approaches to recognize students’ experiences as strengths to build on, and creates systems for Attendance Support that are student-centered, students who have struggled in the past re-engage, participate, and thrive in school.
