Empathy

Empathy is seeing with the eyes of another, listening with the ears of another and feeling with the heart of another - Alfred Adler

For students to become the best person they can be they need to be given the space and time to practice empathy.  At J.H. Sisson students are taught to listen to each other, to pay attention to the needs of others, and they are shown the benefits of getting to know someone better instead of judging them.   

Past and current students have raised funds for the homeless members of our extended community, children in Africa, and the victims of natural disasters.  To find out more about how empathy is taught and how students are tending to the needs of each other clink on the links below.
