Please view our Responsive Classroom handout from our Family Handbook.
The Responsive Classroom philosophy is the cornerstone of our academic community. It promotes the development of a social curriculum that believes that the school’s greatest contribution to the future will be the way it helps to weave and strengthen the social fabric of the community it serves. How children are treated and how they learn to treat others is of utmost importance at Newfield School. As the social skills of cooperation, assertion, responsibility, empathy and self-control increase, the behavior problems decrease, and a noticeable family-like climate permeates the school. http://www.responsiveclassroom.org
