Every classroom at Midland Academy develops a Social Contract at the start of each new year. Students brainstorm what a positive, encouraging, respectful classroom looks like and offer their ideas. From the students' input, a Social Contract is developed and displayed in the classroom. Students are asked to agree to and abide by the contract in their classroom.
This method is effective in helping children participate in their learning environment and be responsible for their behaviors.
Teachers and staff undergo extensive training through the school's adoption of the Capturing Kids Heart program.
