Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) is the responsibility of all the adults and students in the Greenhill community, including, faculty, families, and administrators. Greenhill School strives to incorporate SEL into curriculum and instruction, discipline practices, student support services, professional development, and ongoing assessment for continuous improvement.
"SEL is the process through which all young people and adults acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions and achieve personal and collective goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions" (CASEL, 2020).
SEL skills are developed when opportunities to practice the SEL competencies and skills are embedded into a student’s daily routines and interactions, both at school and outside of school. Through learning about and understanding one’s self and others, students at Greenhill develop the skills and tools that foster the development of resilience, compassion, courage, and integrity. Instilling healthy habits that promote well-being and intentionally working to build a community of belonging, our students feel a responsibility to the well-being of others and are driven to make a positive impact on the world.
