By Educators, For Educators, With Educators

Learn more about our partnership with Milner Middle School, a Title I school in Hartford, CT.

We empower school teams to build upon their unique strengths to achieve their community’s vision of wellness.

Our team of classroom teachers, administrators, and implementation specialists draws from lived experiences and expertise to design programs that are impactful and relevant for educators.

“Mindful Schools is our go-to organization when it comes to training and resources–– what we do, how we do it, and why we do it. We were searching for that, literally for years.”

The Mindful Schools Approach

Schools are facing a mental health crisis, with anxiety, stress, and burnout at record levels. But it doesn’t have to be this way. We take an integrated approach to create healthy school cultures in which every person feels valued, engaged, and ready to learn.
