Our Paradigms

The five paradigms of The Leader in Me are:
  • Everyone can lead.
  • Everyone has genius.
  • Change starts with me.
  • Students are empowered to lead their own learning.
  • Educators develop the whole child.

These are the overarching beliefs for the climate and culture of our school. Please ask your kids to tell you how they lead, what their genius is, an example of how they can affect change, how they've led their own learning this week, and if teachers worked on a Leader in Me lesson this week.

Year eight will be the year of #LonghornsCAN. Our teachers are focusing on empowering instruction this year, giving students more control over their learning with strategic coaching, and raising the bar for every student at our school. Whenever you catch something fabulous showing the power of empowering students to lead their own learning, showing the habits at home, or showing the incredible impact the Longhorns have on our community, share it on social media with the hashtag #LonghornsCAN.
