Character Education in Humble ISDHumble ISD teaches The Great 8 Skills for Daily Life to students in grades K-12. These skills include Optimistic Thinking, Self-Management, Relationship Skills, Goal-Directed Behavior, Decision Making, Personal Responsibility, Self-Awareness and Social-Awareness. Our schools use the Why Try program to teach these skills, helping to lead students to greater Opportunity, Freedom, and Self-Respect. Additionally, Humble ISD schools are designated as No Place for Hate campuses by the Anti-Defamation League.Each year, our middle schools and high schools select an eighth and twelfth grade boy and girl that exemplify the Great 8 skills. The students, who are selected by their peers, are honored at a luncheon and awarded certificates from the department of Counseling & Behavioral Services, as well as Congressman Ted Poe and Representative Dan Huberty's offices. Humble ISD is extremely grateful to all of the generous business sponsors who make the Students of Character program possible.
Character education includes The Great 8, the Why Try Program, Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports, and No Place for Hate.
