Raising Expectations Standards & Honor 180 Curriculum (RESH 180)

According to Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation 7000 students drop out of school every day in America. This alarming statistic translates to 1 high school student dropping out every 26 seconds.
Most of these students want to graduate and go to college but often encounter trauma that deter plans, aspirations and hope of moving forward with dreams. Raising Expectations Standards and Honor 180 (RESH 180) is a classroom strategy aligned in a trauma-informed approach to improve mental and behavioral health by initiating a self-directed, inward examination framework to help process and practice purposeful forward thinking. When mental health improves students’ psychological well-being influences ability to cope with stress, overcome challenges, trust to build relationships and recover for life’s setbacks and hardships.
