the RISE program
RISE is a research-based social-emotional learning program that helps schools lower truancy and suspension rates while increasing test grades and positive behaviors by changing educational culture.
DIANA PATTON, founder and CEO
RISE starts with a simple premise:
In order to successfully teach students to care about themselves and for others, educators must first practice personal self-care.
HELPING CHANGE SCHOOL CULTURES
RISE IS helping schools build positive culture through diversity training
and insightful communication between educators and students through the tenets of self-care and social-emotional learning.
"Kids aren't bad, they're reactive."
"I have never been more moved than I was listening to Diana Patton share her story. She inspired me and my entire staff to focus on being the difference in the lives of children."
Superintendent Bowling Green City Schools
Each student’s physical, emotional, social, educational, and character development needs are of paramount importance. Through RISE, Diana shows educators at all levels—from teachers and administrators to bus drivers and lunch room attendants—how to create caring and equitable school environments.
