Social-Emotional Learning

At Dobson, we prioritize teaching the whole-child. We deliberately teach habits and mindsets that can help students act with respect, empathy, and integrity. Therefore, the school sets aside 45 minutes every Monday morning for Second Step.

Second Step is a curriculum written specifically to help students “manage their own emotions, form healthy relationships, make good decisions, and cope with everyday social and academic challenges.” You can learn more at Secondstep.org OR the Committee for Children.
