Behavior at Arlington Traditional School

Behavior 1

Arlington Traditional School fosters the growth of the whole child. With Arlington Public Schools, we are committed to nurture all students’ intellectual, physical, mental, and social-emotional growth in healthy, safe and supportive learning environments. As a result, ATS creates a school wide community through Responsive Classroom® Principles and Practices. Each teacher emphasizes the development of academic and behavioral skills in a learning environment that is responsive to developmental strengths and needs. Within a classroom, teachers facilitate a classroom community centered on building relationships, goal setting, and opportunities for students to learn social and emotional competencies such as: cooperation, assertiveness, responsibility, empathy, and self-control and set of academic competencies: academic mindset, perseverance, learning strategies, and academic behaviors. In conclusion, ATS provides a learning atmosphere where students feel safe and supported while learning lifelong healthy behaviors they can continue throughout their lives.
