Restorative Practices

Building Relationships, Enhancing Learning, and Creating Safer, More Caring School Communities

Our Restorative Mindset

Above all else, we recognize that the building of connections and relationships is essential to developing a strong and productive school community. We believe in shaping young people into emotionally intelligent, autonomous, and accountable human beings. We are one community and we succeed or fail together. We believe that human connection is our greatest asset.  

Our restorative practices are built upon the following foundational elements: 

  • Relationships
  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Repair
  • Reintegration
