Students Mentoring Students (SMS) Curriculum
At Poudre High School in Fort Collins, CO, students teach other students important lessons in diversity, equity, and social-emotional skills that not only create a more inclusive climate but impact academic achievement as well. Both schools are seeing positive change on school climate indicators and in student behavior, as well as reduced “F” rates for 9th grade students, lower drop-out rates, and higher graduation rates.
These lessons are researched, practiced, taught, debriefed, and continually improved as the bulk of a credit-bearing class within the regular curriculum.
