Social Emotional Learning

Small classrooms promote our students’ ability to self reflect and understand that their role in the group affects more than just them.

Each month the school focuses on a new SEL word, incorporating it into lessons and discussions from Pre-K through eighth grade. These also directly influence the lessons taught during Family Groups.

Positive student-teacher relationships make communication meaningful. Students learn that making mistakes is a natural and essential part of learning; taking responsibility and internalizing the lesson is easier with trusting adults to guide them.

Saklan students develop a strong sense of self through our SEL program. They know their own strengths and challenges and are aware of others’ needs and emotions.
