Why Social-Emotional Learning Matters

According to recent research studies, programs incorporating Social-Emotional Learning make students feel like their school provides a supportive, encouraging environment. These students are more likely to make academic improvements and get better scores in standardized tests, while also improving behavior & attitudes toward school and prevent substance abuse. 

 

College 1st is committed to boost academic performance, improve school attendance and ignite early college & career planning. Social-emotional Learning is essential to accomplish these goals.
