Whether you are an educator, a parent, or a member of the community, we can all agree that we want every one of our students to succeed and ensure they develop the skills necessary to be successful at every stage of life. That's an easy thing to say, but not necessarily easy to accomplish. In the EVSC, our answer to graduating successful students lies in neuroeducation - improving the learning and development of youth - how the brain works and its impact on learning and human development.

When we look deeper into how the brain works, we can get a better understanding of how students learn and develop new skills. When we combine that knowledge and apply this in a systematic way throughout every classroom in every school we can set the stage for transformational growth in our students.

In order to put these pieces together, the EVSC undertook the creation of GAIN. GAIN - Growth in Academics through Innovation and Neuroeducation - is the EVSC’s evidence-based approach to support healthy whole student development with the goal for students to graduate high school with the cognitive, academic, executive functioning and employability skills needed to be successful at work, at home and in the community.
