Blackhurst Elementary announced on April 19th that the school has been named as a Leader in Me Lighthouse School by Franklin Covey. This recognition comes because the school has achieved 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 is having on staff, students, parents and the greater community.

    We have seen such amazing results with our students taking on more leadership roles, embracing their own learning with goal setting and finding their voice. The whole skill transformation empowers students with the leadership and life skills they need to thrive in the 21st century.

    There are over 4,000 Leader in Me schools that stretch across 50 countries. Blackhurst Elementary is one of the 464 schools that have reached the milestone of Lighthouse status. You can find more information about The Leader in Me at https://theleaderinmeonline.org/
