Leader In Me


Legacy Point Elementary is a Lighthouse School!

Legacy Point had the honor of achieving The Leader in Me Lighthouse status. This honor has been bestowed to only 347 schools in the entire WORLD!! This recognition comes from achieving outstanding results in school and student outcomes, by implementing The Leader in Me process with fidelity. It is also because of the extraordinary impact the school has on staff, students, parents, and the greater community.

The Leader in Me is Franklin Covey’s whole school transformation process. It teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to K-12 students and creates a culture of student empowerment, based on the idea that every child can be a leader. The Leader in Me framework helps students learn how to become self-reliant; control their emotions; set and track goals; do their homework; prioritize their time; increase interpersonal skills, such as resolve conflicts and interact well with others; as well as help them develop the skills and self-confidence to lead their lives and succeed. While The Leader in Me is not designed specifically as an academic program, many schools have reported that its goal-setting and data-tracking processes have helped to clarify academic priorities and encourage students to take greater ownership over their education, all of which can impact academic progress.

The Leader in Me differs from other whole school transformation processes in that it offers a holistic, school wide 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 the coursework, traditions, systems, and culture.
