Self discipline is a core feature of Ahlberg Academy. Self regulation is key to sustained liberty. Through coaching and leadership training our "disciplinary" approach is expressed in our Diamond score. It is calculated weekly to evaluate each student on their performance in four areas: respect to authority and values, respect for school and own property; respect for peer's need to grow and learn; and respect to excellence in ones own work.
Students are divided into teams, each with a leader whose role is to support, encourage students in their team. Team leaders meet weekly to discuss common issues and to be coached in leadership. Students with consistent high Diamond scores are elected team leaders or can join enrichment extra curricular classes like creating a short movie.
Parents are a critical part of student life.
