The Performance Character pillar recognizes the deep connection between certain character traits and success. At Athlos schools we integrate the development of Performance Character into every learning opportunity, allowing students to experience this connection first hand. Traits like grit, curiosity, social intelligence, and integrity become a lens through which students view their learning as about more than grades, but as learning for life.
In the Classroom & On the Turf
By integrating Performance Character into our already engaging academic curriculum, students find greater meaning in their classroom instruction. Likewise, as students continue to experience trait growth, they are able to apply these skills to new academic challenges. On the turf, Performance Character attributes play an essential role. Coaches and teachers relate traits to student progress and goals. The results are an expectation of, and ability to, create high quality work.
Safe & Engaging Classrooms
Students begin each day with a chance to check in with each other, share important moments in their lives, and intentionally engage in Performance Character building activities. These morning huddles set the stage for a day of engaged learning allowing students to build knowledge and community simultaneously. These safe and engaging environments foster greater levels of student engagement and motivation.
Student Growth & Reflection
Students are well equipped to overcome obstacles, pursue success, and turn moments of failure into learning opportunities from which they grow. Along with an academic report card, students and families receive regular feedback on a student’s growth in each trait. This information serves as an opportunity to discuss a student’s success and challenges, to hold each other accountable, and to build strong and positive relationships.
