 What is S.O.A.R?

Our School Wide Positive Behavior Program is a team based systematic approach to teaching behavioral expectations throughout the school. It is based on a proactive model which teaches the behaviors, as it reinforces and recognizes students who are able to model these behaviors. The team approach is what truly makes this system work; we need the support of each family to guarantee our success.
