Okmulgee ACE High School is a personalized, blended-learning environment: not only where students are able to dynamically customize their schedule and education, but also where students are nourished toward a culture of success. ACE High School was developed out of concern for lack of success in our students academically, socially and emotionally and post graduation. Three years into our development process, we are understanding the implications of the approach "taking care of the whole child." With "taking care of the whole child" as the primary focus in building this school, our hind site is that the school is organically using a trauma informed approach. "Taking care of the whole child" focuses on using differentiated instruction with all students as well as teaching and employing guided self agency. The combination of these efforts has resulted in a variety of successes, including those unforeseen, with our students.
