Learn how Houma Junior High School in Louisiana saw improvements in academics and reduced formal write - ups:

For what it is worth, we also have a very high rate of teacher retention. I think the rules contributed to that by settling the campus and attracting like – minded people, they are versatile and very easy to communicate and apply.

Generally, the campus is doing very well. The complications that came with covid, and the significant damage done to the area and our building by Ida were serious obstacles, but we have still made substantial progress. I am very proud of the kids and teachers. “

Extracurricular Involvement:

I have found that promoting the five rules has changed the dynamic in the classroom and on the field.

Students are encouraged to simply do their jobs, not cause issues, and represent our school. These ideas have led student to “buy in” to the school community and have encouraged them to always do their best. In the classroom and on the field our students are Bulldogs! “

The five rules of success have really helped our school and football team. In school I have notice the referrals have gone down. We have a lot less fights. The students in general are more pleasant and work harder than students in the past.

When Mr. Corbin became principal 5 years ago, He implemented 5 rules for the school. Theyseemed simple yet effective. That season we were 2-4. The following season I implement theserules on the team. The boys were held accountable. We finished the season 5-2. I havecontinued to use these rules on the team. We have accomplished 3 strait undefeated seasonsand district champions. I believe the rules have helped us accomplish these feats. “
