A Message from Our CEO - May 2024

we teach hope

We believe in the unlimited potential of every student. Martin Luther School is an Approved Private School that provides a comprehensive program for students who need emotional and behavioral support. Our school is designed to support our students to confidently engage in personalized, purposeful learning, joyfully celebrate individual and collective success, and respectfully challenge self and others to grow. We use a holistic educational approach to address the academic, social, emotional, and behavioral needs of children in kindergarten through 12th grade.

a restorative practice approach

Martin Luther School is a Restorative Practices school. This approach to student behavior promotes healthy relationships and positive discipline inside and outside of school. A restorative approach to conflict focuses on solving problems and repairing harm. Our goal is to have our students and staff use it throughout their lives beyond Martin Luther School.

social-emotional learning philosophy

Our faculty and staff are trained in Social and Emotional Learning (SEL), a process in which people understand and manage emotions, set and achieve goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

Designed to increase students’ self-awareness of their emotions and foster their self-regulation by providing tools to assist them, the Martin Luther School SEL program uses various approaches.

Our program also teaches students how to recognize a broader range of emotions, gain perspective into how others see and react to their behavior, increase insight, and determine when and how to use problem-solving strategies to cultivate a more caring and self-aware learning environment.

At Martin Luther School, the student is at the center of learning. Across our curriculum, students engage in challenging activities designed to draw from their interests and create opportunities to discover new passions and talents. We develop four crucial skills: collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking. These skills are vital for students to become life-long learners in our rapidly changing world.
