Concord High School is a community united in support of students’ engagement and well-being. We welcome Denise Pope, PhD, of Stanford University and Challenge Success to advance our work as a community that actively challenges and redefines success to support students’ individual well-being. Join us as Dr. Pope examines the tension that students, families, and teachers often experience surrounding the culture of competition and offers research-based tools for creating a healthier community of learners. We all want our kids to do well in school and to master specific skills and concepts, but our largely singular focus on academic achievement has resulted in a lack of attention to other components of a successful life—the ability to be independent, adaptable, ethical, and engaged critical thinkers.
