Our over 100-year commitment to children, families and educators has given us the ability to develop the student-centered Well-Managed Schools (WMS) program.

Well-Managed Schools (WMS) provides a structured approach to school-wide behavior and social management which creates more positive and calmer classrooms. This Model gives educators practical, real-world skills that can be used to manage behavior, build relationships and teach social skills. Join us in our mission to lift your school to new heights.

This professional learning is ideal for all school staff looking for a universal intervention. WMS uses a proactive approach, emphasizing the use of a common language, common practices, and consistent application of positive and negative consequences that teach. Specific teaching interactions – proven to promote change in the classroom and school are taught using true to life activities and role-plays. Register Today!
