Review for Manners of the Heart, Baton Rouge, LA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Bethel Lower Elementary recently updated our curriculum to the 2nd edition and has began our six year of teaching Manners of the Heart. Before Manners of the Heart, I had 159 discipline referrals in 2013-2014. After 5 years of implementation, I only had 24 discipline referrals last year. That's an 85% reduction! My staff and I are believers that proper implementation of this curriculum changes lives and teaches our students to choose respect!

Rating: 5 stars  

We are in the third year of our implementation of Manners of the Heart. This respect-based heart education has improved the environment of my school. Students understand the character traits taught through the curriculum and can connect to characters of Merryville. My staff is fully invested in teaching the curriculum to their students, because they understand the importance of teaching respect at an early age. We love our monthly Wednesday with Wilbur assemblies, recognizing our monthly Masters of Manners, having fun at our quarterly Principal's Manners Events, and participating in the Project: To My Friend!

Review for Manners of the Heart, Baton Rouge, LA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Manners of the Heart has had a positive impact on our school. As of today, our discipline referrals are down 67% from this time last school year! This is largely due to the focus on the Manners of the Heart curriculum and other changes we made to implement more character education on a regular basis. I hear stories weekly from teachers and parents about Merryville, its characters, and the impact it has made on our students. Our students love the lessons. Our staff love the results of students internalizing the character traits. As the principal, I love positive impact that Manners of the Heart has brought to our school!
