Build a culture where students and staff thrive.

In a Leader in Me school, every detail, from wall decorations to classroom activities, echoes the value and potential of both students and staff. By fostering a culture of respect and belonging, we enhance relationships and results for everyone involved—from administrators and staff to students and caregivers.

Cultivating the culture of your school matters.

For many students, attending school can feel psychologically and physically unsafe. They may encounter coercive discipline practices, bullying, and other adverse experiences that make them feel that school is an uncaring place. Research demonstrates that the lack of a sense of safety and belonging at school can have a detrimental impact on student achievement and interfere with students reaching their full potential. In contrast, a positive and supportive learning environment has been shown to boost academic outcomes leading to improved grades, test scores, and student engagement.

What Educators Are Saying

“We talk about what students experience at home and in the community; they bring that to school. Leader in Me for us has been something that we had at school that they can take home. We’re finding that students are taking the language of the 7 Habits to their parents, and to their churches, and to their organizations and teams, and that is creating a change that I was not anticipating.”

—Dr. Curtis L. Jones Jr., 2019 National Superintendent of the Year, Bibb County School District

“My story is over the last 9 years, watching the magic happen when you make sure that every kid in your building knows that they have genius in themselves and you see what that genius multiplies into, everywhere you look.”

—Beth Mohler, Principal, Rutledge Elementary
