Social Emotional Learning

teacher and student

Children who feel loved and safe just learn better

We’re all about breaking down barriers and tearing down obstacles so that every child has the chance to shine. Our caring teachers and staff go beyond academics to also focus on the physical, social and emotional well-being of each student. We create meaningful relationships between kids and adults, we help instill healthy habits, and we help students build positive connections with staff and classmates.

Our focus on our students' emotional well-being makes Stillwater a leader among other school districts across the state.

Social Emotional Learning Framework

At every level, we provide opportunities for students to build relationships and connect with their teachers and peers in meaningful ways. We believe in educating the whole child and creating safe and welcoming learning communities.


You may know that active kids are better students. You likely realize that what our kids eat affects how they learn. But did you know that kids today are expected to live FIVE YEARS LESS than their parents because of unhealthy lifestyles? 

That’s why we work with our community to strengthen our kids minds and bodies. We’re committed to doing our part to help our students become smarter, happier and live longer lives.
