Social Emotional Learning
Greenwich Public Schools values the social and emotional well being of all students. This begins with learners as early as Kindergarten. The district utilizes Second Step, a classroom-based, social-emotional learning curriculum for Kindergarten–Grade 8 that nurtures children’s social-emotional competence and foundational learning skills. The elementary years are the ideal time to nurture social-emotional competence and develop foundational learning skills. Second Step® Elementary offers an evidence-based approach to social-emotional learning (SEL), with age-appropriate lessons. Second Step Middle School is a first-of-its-kind social-emotional learning (SEL) curriculum that’s modern, web-based, and responsive to the needs of today’s students and educators. It’s underpinned by the latest research in adolescent brain development and social psychology.
