The Leader In Me


The Leader In Me-  This is an evidencer-based, comprehensive school improvement model- developed in partnership with educators- that empowers students with the leadership and life-skills they need to thrive in the 21st century.  Our students are continuing with their learning using the Middle School LIM program emphasizing living the seven habits: Be Proactive, Begin with the End in Mind, Put First Things First, Think Win-Win, Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood, Synergize, Sharpen the Saw.
