We are very pleased that the 2013-2014 academic school year will begin with the implementation of the PBIS system school-wide. PBIS is a researched-based approach to school culture that emphasizes prevention, proactivity, teaching positive behaviors, and reinforcing these behaviors through intentional recognition.
Ryle High School has enjoyed a long history of academic and behavioral excellence. Through our efforts in implementing the PBIS system we hope to continue and build upon the high standards set forth by the Ryle community in the past. As part of the PBIS process, we asked all members of the Ryle community what characteristics “define” the Ryle experience. The results were not surprising – Tradition, Respect, Responsibility, Service, and Integrity.
These five expectations will be our guiding principles as we continue to serve the students at Ryle High School and will be threaded throughout our work in classrooms, school-wide, and in the community. The Ryle High School PBIS team has deliberately created a system of support and recognition that will provide an optimal learning environment for our students.
As we move forward, these school-wide expectations will serve to guide our work of molding Ryle High School students into successful persons. Respect, Responsibility, Service, and Integrity will be the “pillars” of our Tradition.
