The Leader In Me

header leader in me

  • The Vicksburg Warren School District is proud to be a Leader in Me District. Leader in Me is a whole-school improvement process based on the idea that everyone can be a leader. This evidence-based approach empowers students with the leadership and life-skills they need to thrive in the 21st century. We focus on developing the whole-child by:

    • teaching LEADERSHIP to every student,

    • creating a CULTURE of student empowerment,

    • and aligning systems to drive results in ACADEMICS.


    7 Habits of Highly Effective People
    The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is one of the key frameworks of the Leader in Me process. In addition to helping students learn and apply leadership skills, the 7 Habits give us a common language in building a supportive emotional environment. 


    4 Disciplines of Execution
    The 4 Disciplines of Execution is another key framework of the Leader in Me that helps us to identify, track, and achieve academic and personal Wildly Important Goals (WIGs). 

    We invite families and community partners to join us in our mission to graduate ALL students college, career and life prepared by: 

    • Attending an upcoming leadership event

    • Sponsoring a schoolwide leadership role or club

    • Supporting one of our service learning projects

    • Visiting the Leader in Me Family Development page to learn more

    Please contact your child's school to learn more and to get involved with this transformational initiative!

Parent's Guide to LIM at Home

Welcome to The Leader in Me Parent’s Guide. This guide is based on the timeless principles found in The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The Leader in Me. It shares easy-to-understand ideas and activities, and a reading list to help you teach and model powerful 7 Habits principles to your children at home. 

Leadership Starts Here


n 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 Vision statement for the Vicksburg Warren School District.

Our Vision is to : Graduate ALL students college, career and life prepared. 

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 FIVE Lighthouse Schools: Bowmar Avenue, Bovina and Redwood Elementary Schools; Academy of Innovation middle school and River City Early College High School.  

The Leader in Me is Franklin Covey'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.
