Creating a remarkable school culture

From creative workshops on school leadership training to in-person motivational education speakers, learn how to reignite enthusiasm for active learning and positive behavior, both inside and outside of the classroom.

Increased School Morale

When teachers appreciate one another, they become more unified, collaborative, and creative, and this behavior is then imitated by their students.

Positive Classroom Behavior

Students who use FISH! know how good it feels to care about others, which causes bullying to decrease, as students build positive social skills for lifetime learning.

Engaged, Higher Learning

FISH! helps teachers create a culture where students feel safe, work together, and step outside their comfort zones to achieve personal success.

Proactive School Culture

Using FISH!, your school can nurture an atmosphere where students, staff, and parents feel welcomed and committed to making their community a better place to live and play.

“I am a teacher at an elementary school in the Seattle area. For the past 5 years, our staff has adopted your FISH! Philosophy. In the recent years, we have seen huge improvements in the culture of our school. We have received a number of awards for low-income students producing high test scores. A lot of the success we have encountered we attribute to the change in “philosophy” at our school.”
- Alison Hilton
