Wilton Elementary School

" A Leader in Me Lighthouse School"

Leader in Me is a whole school improvement model that uses teaching practices to promote social and emotional learning for students in grades kindergarten through fifth grade. The leadership focus aims to shift mindsets with five core paradigms: everyone can be a leader, everyone has genius, change starts with me, educators empower students to lead their own thinking, and develop the whole person. The program provides teachers with a variety of practices that support leadership, culture, and academics. In addition to leadership development, character development is an essential part of a child’s education. It is not an add-on to the already full school day; but rather, it is an important ingredient that helps to shape the climate and the culture of schools. It is not merely education for life. It is life itself.
