Life Ready Maxims are statements that act as a school’s core drivers to equip and empower every student to pursue their passions, interests, and aspirations. They are used to highlight the areas of hidden strength already within a school. They can also be used as aspirational statements to reinforce the promises your school makes to the community. Maxims should be displayed widely and built into the daily curriculum, as a whole or in part, to familiarize your students and staff with them and embed them into the school culture. We love how the students in this video from Fountain Valley High School are connecting their maxims to the daily life at their school and thinking about how what they are learning is preparing them for what’s next. This is a perfect example of how school communities can bring their outcomes for students to life ensuring that they don’t just live on a poster on the wall!
