This is the time to get wellness right for your whole community.

Let us help you cultivate a wellness mindset that lives at the core of how you educate students and support adults. An integrated, holistic approach to wellness promotes (a) student learning and engagement in school life, (b) teacher enthusiasm and efficacy, and (c)  community care and loyalty. Health is no longer just a semester course in 10th grade. The wellness of the people in your community is a reflection of your values.

For students it’s about belonging.

The challenges of keeping PreK-12 students well pre-date the Covid-19 pandemic. In their article Reframing the Foundation for Student Success, Wilson and Marshall (2019) identify the reality that students coming of age in our current multicultural, differently competitive, technology-driven world need social and emotional competence more than ever before. This goes well beyond revamping the curriculum in your Health class. Watch and listen to Youth Voices: Locating Identity, Agency and Belonging.

“It’s no surprise then that independent schools are recognizing the need to shift the paradigm for preparing students for life after K–12 education. While academics remain at the core of what schools do, many have begun to recognize that students’ current and long-term mental, emotional, and physical well-being strongly contribute to their ultimate success in life.”

For adults it’s about being valued.

Feeling needed and valued is integral to job satisfaction for employees.The just-power-through-it culture of independent schools obstructs the ongoing validation and recognition that teachers and staff legitimately need to perform well. What’s Missing At School: A Wellness Check for Grown-Ups outlines the unsustainability of this flat-out approach for personnel and offers suggestions for ways to assess and address community wellness.

For the community it’s about living your values.

Creating a wellness mindset is really about culture change. And changing school culture is really about core values. Respect. Equity. Inclusion. Learning. Growth. Diversity. Achievement. Joy.  Cultivating a wellness mindset means questioning certain legacy practices. Let Re-Set help you align values and culture, where students at every age thrive and succeed because the school prioritizes the intentional, curious, unhurried, and connected learning all students and adults crave. Where the school prioritizes equity and inclusion in every academic, artistic, athletic, creative and leadership opportunity offered. Where relationships between and among students, teachers, staff, parents, administrators, and alumni matter most of all.
