Compadre Academy has developed a successful character education program, rooted in the foundation of building relationships. In conjunction with our focus on character, Compadre Academy has also been implementing a new Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports model. PBIS was established to address the behavioral and discipline systems needed for successful learning and social development of students. The school-wide system includes positively stated proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create a positive school culture. A system of acknowledgements will help motivate students to try their best and to encourage others as well. One important piece of PBIS is to create a set of school expectations that are well known to all and encompass vision of an empowering educational community. Compadre Academy has chosen to disseminate our expectations through our motto of P.A.C.K.
