SPHS & Challenge Success:
A Partnership for Healthy, Well Balanced Students
Our Mission Statement: In 2016, we chose to partner with Challenge Success to examine what a healthy and balanced high school experience looks like and how the perceived stressful race to college and beyond is increasing anxiety and stress in our children. We are committed to partner with our families so that together, we will raise students to be independent, adaptable, ethical, and engaged as well as being healthy, motivated, and happy.
What is Challenge Success?
Challenge Success evolved from the Stressed Out Students Project at the Stanford University Graduate School of Education. It works with schools and families to develop research-based strategies that provide students with the academic, social, and emotional skills needed to succeed now and in the future.
