      This is a great question. I had the pleasure of seeing a school that had a great sense of community. It was Eagle Rock (http://www.eaglerockschool.org/) in CO. It has the unique situation of the students living there but I think they have principals that all school can implement. They exercise together every morning and they have morning meetings where a different group of students present something about where they are from. The day I visited, students from the east coast explained the stereotypes and the facts of living in the northeast.
