School-wide Expectations

Students in library

Positive Behavior Support

Gladden Farms implements a Positive Behavior Support System in which consistency of behavior will be expected throughout all parts of the school community.

Our school-wide expectations are:
Be safe. Be responsible. Be respectful. Be kind.

The Gladden Farms PBIS program has validated the benefits of directly teaching students our expectations, and acknowledging appropriate behaviors. This has paid off with a significantly reduced number of discipline incidents on our campus. Go Bobcats!
