“Whole Child” education is a term often used to describe an approach to education that focuses on more than a narrowly defined set of outcomes (often limited to standardized test results). This trend is a good thing because it recognizes that kids, like all of us, are whole people and that our social, emotional, physical and mental health are interdependent and equally important. But exactly what a “whole child” education looks like can vary widely.
I was pleased to be invited to share what “whole child” education means at Bixby in the recent publication “Raised in the Rockies”. A copy of the article can be found here, A more detailed description of Bixby’s approach to whole child education is also available here.
