Healthy School Culture

October 22, 2013

Sometimes it really is simple.  What does a healthy school culture start with?  What is the foundation of a healthy school?

Dr. Kent Peterson, author of Shaping School Culture: The Heart of Leadership states it is all about the adults having a sincere belief in all of their students –

“Educators must have an unwavering belief in the ability of all of their students to achieve success, and they pass that belief on to others in overt and covert ways.  Educators must create policies and procedures and adopt practices that support their belief in the ability of every student.”

As leaders and educators, we need to remember and reinforce that ALL students can be successful if we want our schools to have a culture that supports learning.
