    Student Leadership

    At Mee-Yah-Noh School our culture focuses on developing the leadership potential in all students.  We are proud to be part of the Leader in Me. The Leader in Me is based on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People created by Stephen Covey, but has been specifically designed for a school setting. The Leader in Me helps to develop the essential leadership and life skills as well as characteristics that students need to succeed in the 21st century. All Mee-Yah-Noh School  staff have received training in The Leader in Me, and have begun its implementation, with staff and students learning about the 7 Habits and how to incorporate them into their daily lives. You can learn more about the Leader in Me at www.theleaderinme.org.
