Monterey Bay Charter School is a Waldorf school centered on hands-on learning. As an independent charter school, MBCS receives funding from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Located in Pacific Grove, CA, MBCS serves K-8th grade students all across Monterey County. New students at MBCS are not receiving the adequate tools they need during their transition switching schools. Unbreakable Gnomies: A New Student Success Program will focus on a 5th-grade classroom with eight new students. Through this program, students will cultivate resiliency and foster lasting friendships. Mrs.Garlands 5-grade classroom was used as a starting point to see if Unbreakable Gnomies was beneficial to new students.
