By recognizing and naming character strengths, the child has been given the freedom to manifest that strength. We’ve empowered them and given them permission to sit in their greatness.
Resource Coordinator, Cincinnati Public Schools
The consistent language that this program has provided, for not only our staff but for our children, has helped them to understand their strengths as well as identify areas to improve. They come to this conclusion on their own!
Former Principal, Cincinnati Public Schools
I think that students gain personal strength from the program. The students gained self-confidence as others began naming their unique strengths. It’s confirmation that they have strengths, and our students don’t always get this at home.
School Psychologist, Cincinnati Public Schools
As students get to know one another better, they become more tolerant and empathetic … and they look at each other differently and with more appreciation and understanding.
Intervention Specialist, Cincinnati Public Schools
The school culture has improved with the implementation of Thriving Learning Communities and our daily focus on strengths. Adopting the character strength language has provided our students with the opportunity to build more positive relationships with each other.
