Whether you are just beginning to think about school climate, or are well on your way to an even more healthy school, our research-based resources can help your community reach the next level of school reform.

What is School Climate Improvement?

Primarily: To create a safe, supportive and engaging environment that nurtures social, emotional, ethical, and academic learning in every child. This, in turn, has been shown to:

  • Enhance academic performance
  • Lower drop-out rates.
  • Reduce bullying and physical violence
  • Promote teacher retention
