Featured Topic: School Culture
The building of a supportive and inclusive classroom and school is essential to fostering personalized learning and the design of rigorous and relevant curriculum. Eagle Rock School is a small, year round, full scholarship, residential, value driven school that welcomes students who have not previously experienced school success. Eagle Rock has worked to intentionally build a safe and healthy school culture that we believe forms the foundation for our students’ success. Often schools building such a community can face many challenges in light of school and classroom demands. This panel will field questions about building such a community with responses from Eagle Rock School Head Robert Burkhardt, Director of Students Philbert Smith, Director of Professional Development Michael Soguero, Associate Director of the Professional Development Center Dan Condon and 2 current students of Eagle Rock School.
