Life Skills is the application of knowledge to advance each student in developing independent living and decision-making skills along with becoming productive and good family members. During their four years at ELMS, students learn practical skills to resist negative peer pressure to use drugs, live independently, solve problems, and set goals.
Each unit attempts through "hands-on" experiences to teach important social and coping skills that are critical to the development of adolescents. These include thinking, feeling, decision-making, and communication. In addition, the program outlines the benefits of self-discipline, commitment to a drug free lifestyle, respect for others and compassion and exploration of future career opportunities.Grade 5
