School Strength #4– Positive Social Climate
One of the biggest reasons that bullying takes place in school is because of students that are different or stand out. But in our multi-grade classroom setting, you would see many differences in all students of the classroom. This eliminates much bullying that might take place. We have seen many students struggle with bullying that have been successful at Shepherd of the Hills.
Students are also able to become friends with children of all ages and grades. It doesn’t matter if a 5th grader is friends with a 7th grader because they are in the same class. All in all, students don’t need to spend their time worrying about social issues. They can just enjoy going to school and spending time with fellow students.
