At Lausanne, we believe the best educational environment makes learning challenging, engaging and meaningful for students. Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) builds students' ability to understand and manage their emotions. It allows students to feel and show empathy for others and establish and maintain supportive relationships. Students learn to make responsible decisions and set and achieve positive goals.
A child may speak three languages, can do higher-level math and have a near-perfect ACT score. However, if that child cannot regulate their emotions, that child will not reach their full potential in school or life.
There are five main areas we focus on through SEL as identified by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning.
