Challenge Success is a partnership between McAuliffe and Stanford University for the 21/22 school year. Through this partnership, McAuliffe will examine our policies and practices that help or hinder student well-being. We are looking forward to this work and learning how we can become a more supportive environment for all students.

Slide Presentation

In a high-stakes, high-pressure culture, parent and school expectations may have unintentional but damaging effects on students. Increasing demands on students may lead to unhealthy stress, resulting in burnout, disengagement, or debilitating physical and mental health symptoms. This workshop examines the tension that parents, students, and teachers often experience over issues such as homework, grades, and the culture of competition, and offers tools for creating a healthier school climate. This presentation is available for educators and parents.
