Second Step

Currently implemented in Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach Middle Schools

Second Step is a research-based middle school program designed to increase students’ school success and decrease problem behaviors through social-emotional learning and competencies. The lessons help develop positive peer relationships, manage strong emotions, create balanced decision making and increase social and self-awareness. The four units are tailored for each grade level including mindsets and goals; values and friendships; thoughts, emotions and decisions; and serious peer conflicts and anti-bullying behaviors.
