The Cove utilizes The Responsive Classroom Program, to actively involve students in setting the classroom and school culture. At the beginning of the year, teachers work with their students to agree on class rules such as how they want to be treated and how to treat others. The program works towards creating an environment of inclusion, self investment and trust. Student’s voices are listened to and differences are valued which supports positive, nurturing and cooperative relationships.

    Every morning students start their day with a Morning Meeting. They are greeted by their teachers and each other. These meetings provide an opportunity to connect with teachers and peers, learn about the day ahead, play leadership roles, be part of a group challenge and many other opportunities. Responsive Classroom is a positive program that promotes student involvement and supports an environment of learning.
