The Deans Department uses a positive and nurturing approach in order to allow students to reflect on their actions and learn from their mistakes. The G.R.O.W.T.H. CENTER tries to provide a learning experience for the students.
The acronym for G.R.O.W.T.H. is Gaining Reflective Outcomes With Total Harmony. Our department strives for students to find peaceful solutions for existing issues. The acronym for C.E.N.T.E.R. is Counseling Everyone’s Needs Through Enriching Relationships. The emphasis is on building a quality relationship between the deans and the students. We try to establish a rapport and trust with the students in order to have an effective relationship with them.
Every student that serves a GROWTH lunch is required to do a GROWTH CENTER REFLECTION SHEET that consists of various questions and an apology letter. The purpose of the sheet is to allow students to reflect on the choice that they made, why the choice was wrong, how they could’ve handled the situation differently using better choices, and what they have learned from their experience.
