“The “Leader in Me” program is a comprehensive program that was developed by educators to empower students with leadership skills through the use of social and emotional skills. The program seamlessly aligns with our middle school level PBIS system as both focus on a holistic approach to preparing students to become leaders in the 21st century through the integration of academics, leadership, and cultural/societal awareness and expectations.”
