Spotlight on Safe School

UCLA Lab School supports children’s social and emotional development through a safe school system that is integrated into the curriculum and is an important part of the culture of our diverse community of learners. Our School Safe School system and curriculum is designed to build character and manage conflict among students. Community values, outlined in Safe School Guidelines, are interwoven into learning and the life of the school. Problems and conflicts are approached as teachable moments that can be used to reduce future negative behaviors. The UCLA Lab School Safe School system has been implemented in more than 20 schools throughout Southern California and in Washington state.
