Responsive Classroom in Action at Caurus
Whole School Meetings
Our students learn and practice these social and emotional skills:
I bring positive energy to school, I encourage and include others, I am focused and committed to the goals of the school and my own.
I communicate my needs in an appropriate voice, I am willing to explore and problem solve as a learner, I share my ideas and opinions and make eye contact when speaking to others.
Respect & Responsibility
I listen to others to understand and appreciate different viewpoints than my own, I say “please” and “thank you’, I recognize the efforts and work of others.
I listen with my eyes, ears, and body language, I accept others as individuals and do not judge their behaviors, I can put myself in someone else’s shoes.
I remain calm and use an appropriate voice level, I wait my turn to speak in a group discussion and give others equal opportunity to share, I walk silently in school so as not to disrupt the learning of others.

"Deciding to enroll our children in the vibrant Caurus Academy community was akin to love at first sight; that feeling you get when you just "know". The staff is committed to nurturing the complete well being of each child through hands-on learning, appropriately-paced lessons and projects, and in the practice of the "responsive classroom". The element of student-led discovery is evident in every classroom, in the creative implementation of the garden and playground, and in every respectful and genuine interaction. Seeing our kids come home with joyful hearts and minds and a quest for continued learning is a gift that keeps on giving, both in our family and in our larger community. This sense of belonging invokes the desire for deeper and more connected involvement in the school. Caurus Academy fosters the sense of pride and thirst for knowledge that is inherent in every child. We are so grateful to be affiliated with the Caurus Academy family."
