The Leader in Me is a whole-school transformation model that acts like the operating system of a computer — it improves performance of all other programs.
Based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®, The Leader in Me produces transformational results such as higher academic achievement, fewer discipline problems, and increased engagement among teachers and parents. Better yet, The Leader in Me equips students with the self-confidence and skills they need to thrive in the 21st century economy.
What will be possible when our school is filled with students who are responsible, who show initiative, who are creative, who know how to set goals and meet them, who get along with people of various backgrounds and cultures, and who can resolve conflicts and solve problems?
Our school should not merely be focused on improving test scores, but should provide opportunities for students to develop their full potential. We want to develop leaders one child at a time. We teach the 7 Habits not as a curriculum, but in a ubiquitous fashion, integrating them into the curriculum, traditions, systems, and culture at Blackridge Elementary.
