Social Emotional Learning


Thurgood Marshall is a Sanford Harmony Demonstration School. For the past two years, Thurgood Marshall has partnered with National University to implement Harmony daily within the classroom at school-wide.

What is SEL? “Social emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which boys and girls and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary for being a healthy adult. This includes problem-solving skills and intergender communication and understanding, as well as teaching kids to embrace diversity and build healthy relationships that will last well into adulthood.”


Harmony at Home

BronzeBronze Winner! TMES Is proud to have California PBIS Recognition. At TMES, we have a thriving PBIS committee and we find ways to support the culture and climate for students and staff.

What is PBIS? “As a “framework,” the emphasis is on a process or approach, rather than a curriculum, intervention, or practice. The “continuum” notion emphasizes how evidence- or research-based behavioral practices are organized within a multi-tiered system of support, also called “response-to-intervention” Within this definition, the mutually beneficial relationship between academic and social behavior student success is. Finally, the important supportive relationship between positive school- and classroom-wide culture and individual student success is emphasized.”
