At Mountain Education Charter High School, we strive to address the needs of the whole student. In addition to academic success, we want our students to experience success throughout all aspects of their lives. To address the Social and Emotional Learning of students at MECHS our teachers, in collaboration with our student services department, strive to address the needs that go beyond the classroom.
Social and emotional learning (SEL), as defined by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) is “the process through which all young people and adults acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions and achieve personal and collective goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions.
Through a variety of learning opportunities for both students and adults, great efforts are made to help students achieve their goal of graduating from high school and prepare them socially and emotionally for a successful life.
