Leadership Starts Here
In the book, The Leader in Me, Dr. Stephen R. Covey outlines one of the seven habits of an effective leader is to, "Begin with the End in Mind." In keeping with that spirit, we have tailored our mission statement for the Vicksburg Warren School District.
Our mission statement is:
"It is our goal to equip every student with the literacy skills to succeed in challenging courses, meet academic standards, and graduate from high school prepared for college or ready for a challenging career."
The Vicksburg Warren School District is proud to have one of the first Leader in Me District Implementations in the country. All classes grade Pre-K through 12th grade. We are home to the ONLY three Lighthouse Schools in the state of Mississippi, Bowmar Elementary, Bovina Elementary and Redwood Elementary Schools.
The Leader in Me is FranklinCovey's whole school transformation process. It teaches 21st-century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader
