The Leader in Me is a whole-school transformation model that acts like the operating system of a computer —
it improves performance of all other programs. Based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®, The Leader in Me
produces transformational 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 thrive in the 21st century economy. Westside Elementary School believes in this model and strives to
unleash the potential of every student through The Leader In Me!
"Remember, too, that your growth will be evolutionary, but the effect will be revolutionary. As we gain insight into the changes that we want and expect, our expectations rise. We want to change immediately and expect sweeping dimensions to it! Effective change comes slowly. Its effects should be permanent."
