*Indicates schools that received a Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools award for the 2017-2018 school year and have again been nominated for consideration for the 2018-2019 awards.

Creating high performing classrooms is no easy task.

The typical classroom comprises 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?

The Flippen Group, a national professional development provider founded by Flip Flippen in 1990, believes what the research demonstrates – that students are most likely to succeed when they are emotionally safe and able to reconnect with their natural curiosity. Flippen Group 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. Campuses consistently implementing Capturing Kids Hearts processes often report increases in academic improvement and reductions in discipline referrals.

The 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!
