What is the Peace Room?

The Peace Room is a classroom originally set up as a place of de-escalation. Its intention is to be a resource for teachers and students who need a place to come to "regroup", a quiet harbor from the storm. It is a small classroom and we have coped with up to 15 students at a time but we find that when we keep the numbers down the results are more meaningful.

Usually the student comes to the Peace Room with a pass and stays for one period/class. However, these is exceptions and some students elect to stay for several days.

It is our wish that when a visitor leaves the Peace Room, she would feel better about herself.
