At Independence, we believe that learning to answer questions like these is just as essential as learning science, Spanish or history.
In our I-to-I Conflict Resolution Program, children learn a step-by-step process for working through differences. In our Middle School Character Development Program, they explore ethical decision making, our rights and responsibilities as citizens, and timely topics such as countering cyber bullying.
Just as important, in classrooms throughout the school and moments through the day, our students interact with caring educators who make it their mission to nurture growth in character and values. This happens through explicit instruction and also quiet, powerful example.
