School culture shapes many aspects of student experiences: from feeling safe and supported to the norms about learning, to the interactions through which students internalize emotional and social competencies such as grit, responsibility, civility, and citizenship. Creating a strong intentional culture is the fundamental pathway towards achieving excellence with integrity.
USE DATA TO SHAPE CULTURE AND BUILD CHARACTER
After you have collected and reviewed your school’s culture data, you can use the Excellence with Integrity ESSENTIALS series to create powerful learning experiences and develop essential 21st-century social, emotional, and character competencies among your students.
Knowing from your data which areas you need to support or improve will help you choose which of the ESSENTIALS modules will best suit your needs.
Our journey with the Excellence with Integrity solutions has led us down a path where we tackled issues related to integrity, stress, and communication, and our students developed skills and strategies to lead more effectively in the classroom, on the athletic field or court, and in life beyond the walls of high school.

We credit our work with the Institute as a major factor contributing to the achievement of the National Schools of Character award. Results from the CEEA survey enabled our school to create focused, data-driven goals. Professional development and the implementation of Excellence with Integrity tools resulted in measurable growth in the targeted areas.
