Culture Research

Positive school culture is an essential requirement for ensuring higher attendance. Research has found that when students and staff feel valued and recognized for their unique gifts and talents, they experience an increased desire to engage with people and activities at school. This student and staff engagement helps students and staff see that their presence impacts others, and their attendance positively benefits other students and teachers in their classrooms. As a result, attendance rates naturally increase.

Attendance

Leader in Me schools create school cultures where students and staff feel safe and engaged.
