Resilience works to proactively prevent bullying by incorporating a strong social emotional curriculum for all students and building a positive and supportive school culture. If issues of bullying do arise, we use a Restorative Justice approach to allow everyone affected to address the incident(s) and develop agreements for repairing and preventing further harm.
Each student and situation are different. Resilience does use a referral system to allow teachers to send students to administration for disruptive behavior, where coaching and guidance are offered along with natural consequences for a student’s behavioral choices.

Yes, our charter middle school complies with all standards set forth by the Florida Department of Education, including all standardized tests and End of Course Exams.
Students have the right to dress in such a way as to express their own personality. While our public charter school does not have a formal dress code (i.e., uniform), students' dress should not be disruptive to the school’s mission, vision, and/or philosophy. This also applies to field trips, site visits, academic internships, and other school-related activities, and applies equally to students and staff. Text or images that promote violence, alcohol, tobacco, drugs, or any discrimination is prohibited on any article of clothing. Exposure of underwear is prohibited. Students taking Capoeira are advised to wear clothes they can move in as they will be required to do high kicks.
Resilience Charter School maintains that it is critical that all members of the charter middle school community respect each other’s rights, individuality, and differences. Compassion and mutual respect provide the platform for sharing, learning, innovation, and personal development. Accordingly, our public charter school seeks to prevent harassment of any kind, including harassment based on gender, race, color, creed, religion, national origin, age, disability, body-shaming, sexual orientation, or of a sexual nature.
Resilience is in the process of accreditation with AdvancED and will notify families when accreditation is received.
