OFFICE OF SCHOOL CULTURE
Our purpose is to commit energy towards driving a healthy culture.
Education is an ever changing sector and navigating change is very difficult. Committing energy towards driving a healthy culture is a process and emphatically not a final product. Schools face real challenges on a minute by minute basis and only one thing has the ability to hold everything together...culture. Every single school in America has a specific culture by which they operate, which is experienced through values. Whether it’s consciously practiced or not, culture drives the learning environment, it drives the attitudes of all stakeholders, and most importantly, it drives the outcomes of students.
In partnership with Noble Impact, the Office of School Culture at eStem Schools has been established to curate and cultivate a healthy culture. Focusing on identity and innovation provides great value in this positive growth phase of the entire organization.
Three guiding questions to drive the identity process:
- Who are we?
- Why do we do what we do?
- How did we get here?
Three guiding questions to drive the innovation process:
- Where are we going?
- When are we going there?
- What is changing?
In the coming weeks and months, the content on this site will change as the students, teachers, staff, parents, and administrators begin to answer these questions. Driving a healthy culture is a process, and the Office of School Culture is committed to embracing that process by focusing on identity and innovation.
