Culture & Community

TranZed is an organizational philosophy and set of operating principles that is used to create and manage a culture designed to promote change and growth in children and the professionals who educate and care for them.

The result is a culture:

  1. That is flexible enough to continually adapt to the needs of students and a turbulent environment by innovating as needed and supporting best practices for educating and caring for children;
  2. Where the needs of the adults are subordinate to the needs of the children, i.e., management and professional staff focus is on how the adult thinks and act in response to children’s needs rather than how children behave; and that radiates the values and life skills needed to have a successful life.
