Social-Emotional Development

We know that students thrive socially and academically when opportunities for meaningful connection are readily available.

Tower’s social-emotional curriculum, Responsive Classroom®, builds the essential foundation that enables children and teens to develop deep friendships, resolve disagreements, communicate their needs—or those of a friend—and feel anchored in a community with diverse perspectives.

Academic Fortitude

In addition to the character building and social confidence benefits of Responsive Classroom®, teachers instill a set of academic competencies that build academic confidence, including: academic mindset, perseverance, learning strategies and academic behaviors.

This character-building education promotes social confidence and meaningful connection, enabling children to recognize a sense of belonging to a community of learners–one in which their ideas and feelings will be heard while knowing how to welcome the ideas and feelings of others.
