Nurtured Heart Approach

The Nurtured Heart Approach is utilized throughout the school.  The Nurtured Heart Approach is a relationship focused methodology which helps students build "inner wealth". Students learn that  they will receive endless amounts of praise, energy, recognition, and reward for positive behaviors while inappropriate behaviors are not energized. The Nurtured Heart Approach can propel students toward amazing achievements and the incidents of challenging behaviors dissolve.  The Nurtured Heart ApproachTM (NHA) is a social emotional curriculum developed for building relationships in which learners are intrinsically motivated both academically and pro-socially. Staff training is ongoing and energizes all positive behaviors.

Core Methodology: The 3 StandsTM

  • Stand One: Absolutely No!
    I refuse to energize negative behavior.

  • Stand Two: Absolutely Yes!
    I will relentlessly energize the positive.

  • Stand Three: Absolutely Clear!
    I will maintain total clarity about rules that demonstrate fair & consistent boundaries.
