Intentional School Culture Model

Each Mastery school has a dedicated school culture team that is responsible for ensuring a positive and safe school community. Our schools adopt common rituals such as morning circles, community meetings, and school events that celebrate the school community and the joy of learning. At the same time, we ensure that school rules and values are consistently supported and enforced. Our teachers adopt common school-wide classroom behavior systems so students are held to consistently high expectations. We intentionally create a community that balances structure and student independence so schools feel both orderly and joyful. College banners and hallways full of student work send the message that students are expected to achieve at the highest levels.



Community Building

Mastery schools strive to create strong classroom and school communities through morning and community meetings. All elementary students begin their day in a fun and engaging way that helps them prepare for academic and social-emotional learning. All students participate in a weekly Community Meeting where they build community through chants and cheers, engage in friendly competitions, and celebrate their grade peer accomplishments.


Restorative Practices

Our school disciplinary system is organized around Restorative Practices, an approach that supports students in taking personal responsibility for their wrongdoing and repairing any negative impact their actions caused to relationships within the school community. Our approach blends emotional support systems, leadership opportunities, restorative consequences, traditional consequences, and well-defined expectations and limits. Our goal is to establish clear boundaries for behavior while building students’ personal effectiveness and reinforcing the value of relationships and the school community.


ALICE Training®

Mastery Schools has partnered with ALICE Training® for active shooter response preparation. The training provides Mastery staff with a strategy to recognize instances of danger, identify scenarios for lockdown or evacuation, inform others of present danger, and safely exit situations of extreme duress. With training from the leading active shooter preparation course in the country, Mastery remains committed to the safety of all staff and students.

Safe2Say Something 

Mastery Schools participates in the Safe2Say Something PA reporting system.

Safe2Say Something, run by the Office of the Pennsylvania Attorney General, teaches students, educators, and school staff how to recognize the signs and signals of individuals at risk of hurting themselves or others and empowers them to report concerns anonymously via an easy-to-use system. 

Anonymous tips about violence, suicide, guns, drugs, threatening behavior, bullying, cyberbullying, and other concerning acts can be reported through the Safe2Say Something website or mobile app 24 hours a day, seven days a week. After receiving a tip, the program’s crisis center reviews it and alerts school administration and law enforcement within seconds if intervention is needed. Learn more about the program here.
