Leader in Me
Chestnut Hill Academy became an accredited Leader in Me School in 2010. By integrating the program into an already strong curriculum, our curriculum became even stronger. Adopting a common school wide language has helped change a ‘good’ school culture to a ‘great’ school culture. Integrating this language into organizational structures (professional learning, communities, building leadership team, etc.) has strengthened them considerably, and by infusing this new language into already strong instructional practices, those practices have become stronger. The Leader in Me process helps develop the essential life skills and characteristics staff and students need in order to thrive in the 21st century.
