A D.R.E.A.Ms culture is one in which everyone is accountable for adhering to high expectations and scholars are consistently acknowledged and rewarded for appropriate behavior and receive fair, logical consequences for misbehaviors. The D.R.E.A.Ms core values promote a sense of community and fosters positive adult-scholar and peer-to-peer relationships.
BRICK Academy seeks to develop the D.R.E.A.Ms core values, as social and emotional learning competencies, in each of its scholars:
