Adaptability. How important is it?
Traditionally, most folks attribute success to how smart you are which is measured by your IQ (Intelligence Quotient). Some have also added to this success formula the idea of your emotional intelligence/EQ. This would be measured by your ability to be aware of and in control of one’s emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships. You could also think of this as your social skills. Recently, a third member has joined this success formula and it is your AQ, or adaptability quotient. Your adaptability quotient is measured by your ability to adapt to and thrive in an environment of change. I am not going to debate if one is more important than the other, but I believe that we can all agree that all three of these are important to the success of an individual or the success of an organization.

Some examples of how we are adapting to meet the needs of our students are as follows:
We are proud of our continued growth and excellence. We will continue to look for ways to adapt to better meet the needs of all our students.
