Positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) is one approach Westbrook High School uses to encourage good behavior by first recognizing and rewarding what the student is doing right. Our behavioral interventions and supports are put in place to help students begin to notice their behavior and respond differently, using emotional intelligence.
SABER is the acronym at WHS to outline the following expectations. Our Matrix was created by students!
S – I Am a Scholar
A – I Will Achieve
B – I Believe in Myself
E – I Will Encourage Others
R – I Will Show Respect
At Westbrook High School (WHS) we utilize a Behavior Matrix that was created and is implemented by all school personnel. It includes the expected behaviors in all school settings (for example, lunch line expectations, bathroom, office, classroom, how to start and end school, etc). The behavior matrix is reviewed and revisited on a consistent basis. All classrooms are given posters of the Matrix to post in the rooms. At WHS, we are promoting, “SABER” Behavior to help our students make thoughtful decisions regarding the choices they make at school, at home and in the community.
