SECONDARY SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL LEARNING

This year all middle and high school students in the Beaverton School District are learning through the Character Strong Curriculum. This curriculum was created to support school communities as they engage in the work of preparing young people to thrive in the 21st century. The research supports the effectiveness of this content to increase student's academic success and college/career readiness. The lessons focus on developing skills and mindsets around building positive habits, understanding our emotions, improving teamwork and increasing empathy.
