A Growth Mindset
Here at YC, we practice The Growth Mindset to ensure we are empowering our students to achieve.
"One study suggested positive teacher-student relationships, particularly for students labeled academically at risk, have a beneficial impact on students' academic efforts and are associated with higher confidence in academic ability, both of which contribute to higher overall achievement. [..] Positive student-teacher relationships can improve students' relationships with one another, as well as increase engagement in their schoolwork."
We like to focus on building relationships with our students so that we can create an environment that enriches the mind to tap into all that it can achieve.
Small schools, big achievements...because it is all in the small things that, if watered, grow into big accomplishments.
