Positive Climate

Laveen School is dedicated to providing a safe and respectful school environment.

Laveen Hawks S.O.A.R to Success

Peer Mediation

Laveen’s Peer Mediation program consists of problem-solving by youth with youth. It is a process by which two or more students involved in a dispute meet in a private, safe, and confidential setting to work out problems with the assistance of a trained student mediator.


Laveen’s Mentoring program strives to develop positive relationships outside of the classroom between staff and target students. The adults serve as role models who provide encouragement and motivation to students in order to assist in personal and academic growth.

Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS)

The Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS) program at Laveen Elementary school was established to create a school climate in which appropriate behavior is the norm. PBIS members work together to ensure staff members and students understand and internalize the expectations in all areas of the school using the SOAR matrix as a guideline. The PBIS team meets monthly to analyze behavioral data that helps drive multi-tiered support systems for the social, behavioral, and academic success of all students. At Laveen, being Safe, Organized, Accountable, and Respectful is integrated into the daily routine through continuous positive support systems.
