What are trauma-informed schools?
Trauma-informed programming reflects a growing movement world-wide impacting schools and other institutions caring for vulnerable and marginalized populations.
Trauma-informed schools have chosen to redesign their school culture based on advances in the neurobiology of trauma and attachment, and the staggering ACES data identifying the severity of social and learning needs of today's k-12 students.
While the same data informs program ethos and guiding priciples, each school within a district contextualizes program specifics according to the needs of their community.
