School Climate & Culture
Our school climate is defined by our Code of Conduct. Founded on the Love and Logic® philosophy and guided by the teachings of our faith, the goal of our Code is to foster the development of self-discipline. Personal responsibility and respect for oneself, property and others is learned through a process in which students come to own their choices and actions. In our model, adults guide children toward decision-making focused on logical consequences, personal growth, reconciliation and healing.
Everyone at St. Robert School is responsible for contributing to a safe and orderly learning environment. In addition to security measures and high standards of propriety and decorum, we are also working actively to create a tolerant social culture. We have implemented Milwaukee Children’s Hospital’s Act Now!® Bullying Prevention curriculum to address inevitable experimentation with social cruelty. The goal of our effort is to involve all students, staff and parents in consistent, preventative and responsive measures to reduce bullying behavior, empower victims, improve peer relations and create a safe and positive school environment.
Our response hierarchies include not only communication and consequences, but personal growth, reconciliation and healing that are at the core of healthy human relationships. While they are in school, our students are learning that violence and exclusion will not be tolerated, and that by virtue of our human connection, we all share responsibility for the actions around us. If we are
successful, our students will one day take their experience of a bully-free culture beyond school to be part of social solutions that build better communities and a more peaceful world.
