Why are we providing this experience for our school community?

Building a strengths-based school means harnessing the potential of educators and students to empower individuals to do what they do best. Integrating strengths into a school requires implementing strategies that affect all aspects of the school and capitalizing on a systematic strengths-based development process for students, educators, and parents.
