Caliber Public Schools

About the organization

To best develop social and emotional skills and abilities, students should be explicitly taught. Our social and emotional curriculum teaches students how to identify their own emotions, manage their own emotions, engage in and understand various social situations, and empathize and build relationships with others. These skills and abilities are taught through activities, role-plays, and lessons. These lessons are taught during a daily structure known as Circle, and teachers are coached and supported with Circle the same way they are any other class.
