We find that the Character and Leadership curriculum works well for transitioning students from middle school to high school. It opens dialog between students and their new teachers and faculty, as well as, community members who serve as guest speakers. Conversations that usually wouldn’t happen in traditional classroom environments lead to students making better connections with the people and resources available to them. This is our first year using the material and we already can see differences in our freshmen students.
