Students in K-8 use the research-based Second Step curriculum for social emotional instruction.  Supported by music and videos, take-home activities, and stories kids relate to, the developmentally appropriate Second Step lessons instill social-emotional skills for students, including self-awareness, self-management, conflict resolution, decision-making, and social responsibility.


Students in grades K–5 develop their social-emotional skills—including making friends, managing emotions, and solving problems—to set them on the path for social success and academic readiness.


Middle-schoolers are better prepared to navigate adolescence with communication, coping, and decision-making skills that help them make good choices and avoid pitfalls, such as peer pressure, substance abuse, and bullying.
