Leader in Me High School

Develop Life-Ready Leaders

Our Approach

Create a high school culture focused on achieving career, college, and life readiness for every student.

The Leader in Me® High School model changes the way your staff and students see career, college, and life readiness. Schools begin to do things differently in order to get lasting results.


Leader in Me High Schools establish a culture that will:

  • Increase attendance rates.

  • Decrease discipline referrals.

  • Inspire accountability and motivation.

  • Create a student-led learning environment.

  • Rekindle the passion and purpose of teachers.

  • Prepare every student for career, college, and life.

The students are team players now. They’re not angry anymore. They’re not dealing with depression. You can feel it. Kids are laughing. They are greeting you. They’re not sneering and making fun of other people. It’s truly like a family environment.
