Responsive Classroom

WHAT IS RESPONSIVE CLASSROOM?

Believing that social development and personal responsibility are essential to a challenging and joyful school community, we use the Responsive Classroom approach to build essential skills: cooperation, assertion, responsibility, empathy, and self-control. Students begin their day with a morning meeting, learn the importance of rules and logical consequences, are introduced to new materials through a guided process, and gain self-esteem through decision-making.

The Responsive Classroom is designed to infuse all teaching at the school, including the thoughtful arrangement of each classroom to encourage independence, promote caring, and maximize learning.
