Our faculty has been very engaged in the book study of Dr. Dweck's book MINDSET: The New Psychology of Success. Teachers are making connections from the book to their classrooms and beyond. AP Social Studies teacher Mrs. Nogueras shared, "...it's all about perspective and the research proves that in fact, attitude can potentially play a more significant role than aptitude."
