Restorative Practices

 

Young Scholars prides itself on upholding a highly structured environment intended to maximize instructional time while also promoting a school culture that is joyous and supportive. Over the last several years, students and staff have built a safe and predictable school environment where students take pride in their community and are regularly rewarded for their good choices. Each year, students have experienced a wide range of trips, events and community building activities to incentivize their modeling of the core values, along with comprehensive behavioral supports during times of struggle. The school is shifting to more student ownership, student leadership, restorative practices and civic engagement as a next phase in its progress.
