School-Based Research Projects

These school based research projects have been conducted by Schools Attuned practitioners. All Kinds of Minds provided several schools with grants to help fund their research efforts. The administration and teaching staff of each school developed the questions, and collected, analyzed and summarized the data in these research projects.

A significant modification within the Menlo Park Terrace School educational program during the last several years has been the integration of the Schools Attuned Program.
