Introduction to Habits of Mind by South Fayette Middle School

Help us celebrate 2017 as the 25th anniversary of the development of Habits of Mind.  What started as a simple list of characteristics of successful people has developed into a world-wide force for growing efficacious students and a quest for transforming school culture.

Each month of 2017, beginning in February, one of our certified International Habits of Mind Learning Communities of Excellence will be featured with a virtual school tour.  You can access it on the home page of the Institute for Habits of Mind ( We invite you to visit the featured school each month.    If you want to know more about the certification process, please visit:
