Leader In Me Overview
Using Best-Practices and Universal Principles
Leader in Me helps students learn how to become self-reliant, take initiative, plan ahead, set and track goals, do their homework, prioritize their time, manage their emotions, be considerate of others, express their viewpoint persuasively, resolve conflicts, find creative solutions, value differences, and live a balanced life.

The Leader In Me (Elementary)
Leader in Me utilizes and integrates several leadership, social-emotional learning, quality, and educational models and processes from past and current thought leaders.
Leader in Me includes training on establishing a vision for the school, goal setting, data tracking, and personal accountability systems and is aligned with best-in-class content and concepts practiced by global education thought leaders. The Leader in Me provides a logical, sequential, and balanced process to help schools proactively design a culture that reflects their vision of their ideal school.
Leader in Me differs from other whole-school transformation processes in that it offers a holistic, schoolwide experience for staff, students, and parents, and creates a common language and culture within the school. The leadership principles and lessons are not taught as a curriculum but instead are incorporated into coursework, traditions, systems, and culture.
Leader in Me seeks to:
Create a culture of trust and engagement.
Empower students to lead their own lives, and make a difference with others.
Provide students tools to better achieve goals.
Develop student voice.
