Growth Manage Yourself

GROWTH: Manage Yourself.
Develop problem-solving skills.
Practice mindfulness.
Persevere.

This principle refers to the ability to regulate one’s emotions, feelings, and behaviors effectively in different personal and academic situations; the ability to manage one’s stress constructively; controlling impulses and expressing emotions appropriately while setting and achieving personal and academic goals. Students who demonstrate growth are able to use problem-solving skills, critical thinking, and logical reasoning both independently and while interacting with others at home, in school, and in the workplace.
