We will be implementing PBIS (Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support) at Farnsworth School this year! PBIS is an approach used by school personnel to establish evidence-based behavioral interventions to help students achieve success in social, emotional, and academic areas. One of the tenets of this proactive approach to behavior management involves shifting the focus to positive reinforcement to encourage appropriate student behaviors. 


Teaching behavioral expectations and rewarding students for following them is a much more positive approach than waiting for misbehavior to occur before responding. The purpose of schoolwide PBIS is to establish a climate in which appropriate behavior is the norm.

Please see our new MUSTANG Behavior Standards! 

We are Respectful, Responsible, Safe and Proud.
