What determines success in life?

October 24, 2018
By Dr. Plant

As progress reports are about to be mailed and Parent-Teacher conferences are sneaking up on us, I thought this may be an appropriate time to share a short video with you that talks about what exactly it is that determines an individual's success in life.

We do so much here in this school to ensure that our students are engaged in their learning process, asking meaningful questions, building on their curiosities and tackling new challenges every day, yet according to Angela Duckworth there is one singular prediction for success in life. My hope is that you as parents, and we as educators, are promoting this each and every day. Watch her in this short TED Talk here.
