mySchool: P.R.I.D.E. program at Umphrey Lee boosts social, academic growth (video)


Students and staff at Dallas ISD’s Umphrey Lee Elementary School are using the  P.R.I.D.E. House system to sharpen students’ social skills and in turn boost their academic success.

“It provides a deep connection between our students and teachers in various grade levels,” said Principal Roshondra Clayton-Brown. “And we have found it is really working and changing the social environment of our school.”

Melanie Dadson, House Coordinator/Testing Coordinator, said a key to the program is consistency. Each week, students are introduced to certain elements: a college, a quote, a habit of mind and an essential. Watch the video to see parts of the program in action.
