Teaching is a reflective process that guides and empowers students through sharing meaningful and engaging practices. Differentiated strategies and assessments are essential for dynamic, culturally relevant teaching that recognizes the potential and ongoing growth of every Grattan student.
Culturally relevant learning is an exciting interactive process of shared discovery. Learning is making connections through prior knowledge and experiences between ourselves and the world around us.
Literacy is a portal to transform yourself and impact society. Literacy has many forms of expression which encompass the concrete through the abstract.
Grattan uses Restorative Practices with our students – and within our entire community – to encourage personal responsibility, to create a safe and caring environment, and to restore relationships when harm has occurred. To learn more about this approach to communication and discipline, visit the Restorative Practices pages at SFUSD or at HealthierSF.
