Traits for Success At the highest level of curriculum development, we search for ways to guide children to take full advantage of the many challenges and opportunities provided to them.
At St. Michael’s Country Day School, we ask that teachers, parents, students and administrators demonstrate “Traits for Success.” Research indicates that these character traits play the most significant role in enabling students to achieve success in school and in later life. Such factors as reading levels, affluence, grades, and I.Q. do not correlate as highly with eventual success as Organization, Attentiveness, Courage, Generosity, Persistence, Positive Attitude, Flexibility, Collaboration, and Responsibility.
Each Trait for Success is emphasized throughout the curriculum and during monthly school-wide Assemblies.
