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, teachers in collaboration with our student services department 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 children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible 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.
