A Whole-School Transformation Process

The Leader in Me is Franklin Covey’s whole school transformation process. It teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader. 

The Leader in Me produces incredible 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 achieve in the 21st century economy. 

7 Habits of Highly Effective People

Leader in Me is based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. 

Children take to these habits like fish to water and in no time at all these habits become part of their everyday vocabulary and daily routines. 

From pre-school through 6th the kids at Barnett Elementary will learn about and understand these habits and apply them in many surprising ways this upcoming school year.
