The Leader in Me Model

Keys teachers and administration have completed the final phase of districtwide training in the "Leader in Me" process and are on track to become the third school in the state to be recognized as achieving Lighthouse Status.

The Leader in Me is a whole-school transformation model and process that empowers students with the leadership and life skills they need to thrive in the 21st century.  

The Leader in Me starts from a powerful premise: every child possesses unique strengths and has the ability to be a leader, which in turn shapes the views of staff to value and develop the whole child. The process includes student participation in goal-setting, data-tracking, leadership roles, student-led conferences, leadership environments, and leadership events and assemblies.

Keys School began this journey four years ago and will initiate the Lighthouse Status review process in August.

"I am proud of our staff for putting in the effort.  Our students and staff continue to grow in this process. We are working hard to impact our community in a positive way and working hard to get better every day. Our goal is to continue to prepare students who will be leaders in the junior high, high school, and beyond." --Superintendent Vol Woods

Keys School is proud to  partner with parents in order to reinforce the 7 Habits principals as part of the Leader in Me program!  We have a Leader in Me Parent's Guide that shares ideas and activities, and a reading list to help families teach and model these habits.  Please take a look!
