ABOUT THE SCHOOL

School Type: Catholic
Grades served: 9-12
Enrollment: 325

PROBLEM

Our problem comes from determining a positive identity of our school. In addition, our students do not have a real sense of pride and self-efficacy towards their academic life.

HOW MIGHT WE…

Empower our students to become independent self-advocates?

SOLUTION

Our solution will involve 2 key components: “small win” recognition in the classroom and “big win” recognition during school character assemblies.  Teachers will be invited to hand out “Warrior High Fives” during class to students who exhibit exceptional behaviors of character and self-advocacy.  Once a month, students and teachers will nominate students who live out the Intended Student Outcome (ISO) of the month.  Nominated students will be recognized at our monthly character assembly.
