Conflict Resolution Program
Whitehouse Prep is committed to establishing a fair, equitable and cooperative school environment. As such, the school incorporates a Conflict Resolution and Character Education curriculum that seeks to develop, at a very early stage in a child’s development, basic skills and tools for children to use in working collaboratively with one another and for managing inter-personal conflict fairly and without resorting to aggressive behavior and bullying. By providing a curriculum that places an emphasis on the importance of respecting differences, collaboration and resolving conflict through peaceful means, our students learn vital social and emotional skills (too often overlooked in our public schools) that they will need in order to live more fulfilling, productive and enriching lives.
This program will be offered in conjunction with the New Jersey State Bar Foundation and all teachers have specific training in Conflict Resolution, Character Education and Anti-Bullying instruction. Our conflict resolution curriculum also includes a Mini-Court mock trial the K-II students perform in the spring in which they role play all the participants of a real trial.
