Creating high performing classrooms is no easy task.

The typical classroom is comprised of twenty or more students with diverse family backgrounds and expectations for behavior, randomly assembled into a cohort, and required to learn together. Too often, the impact of peer pressure and outside influences create a classroom culture that passively or even actively resists learning.

Teachers are tasked with raising the bar on student performance while competing against social, environmental, and outside pressures as never before. While researchers and officials work to determine the most effective curricula, teachers struggle to manage their classrooms and meet parental and administrator’s expectations.

How can today’s teacher transform a classroom from a disruptive, reactive environment into a place where put-downs and criticism dissipate, and students’ minds become actively engaged in learning?

Flippen Group, a national professional development provider, believes what the research demonstrates – that teachers are most likely to succeed when students are emotionally safe and able to reconnect with their natural curiosity. Flippen processes provide educators the skills they need to change the trajectory of students’ lives. Openness replaces defensiveness. Judging and feelings of being judged are replaced with acceptance and real connectedness to the school. “Discipline problems nearly non-existent,” and “Academic achievement constantly improving,” are common feedback following implementation of the highly acclaimed Capturing Kids’ Hearts® processes.

Since 1995, campuses nationwide have experienced amazing outcomes with Capturing Kids’ Hearts tools and processes, creating the socio-emotional safety conducive to learning. Now, through the Showcase Schools Awards, Flippen Group seeks to recognize and celebrate schools that go the extra mile each day, building an environment where students are connected relationally and eager to learn. The following campuses have been nominated for the Capturing Kids’ Hearts Showcase Schools Award for the 2015-2016 school year:

  1. Ash Fork JUSD K-12 School, Ash Fork, AZ

  8. Sherrod Elementary School, Palmer, AK
  9. Taft High School, Taft, TX
  10. Thunderbolt Middle School, Lake Havasu, AZ

Flippen Group believes that when unsung education heroes produce exemplary outcomes in schools and pave the way for other schools to follow, they need and deserve recognition for a job well done. Please join us in congratulating and honoring these schools and their leaders for their dedication and commitment!
