Character Strong Logo

Character Strong is a well-respected national program that provides lessons to help teachers guide students toward more positive relationships with their peers, and to strengthen their own mental well-being and positive outlook. Character Strong educators partnered with middle school educators and students across the country to help develop the content for the lessons in the program. This is a program that some of our administrators have utilized in other school districts and found to be very beneficial to their students.
