Bellerive recertified as Leader in Me Lighthouse School

Leader in Me logo 12/21/2018 -- Bellerive Elementary has been recertified as an internationally recognized Lighthouse School by The Leader in Me program. Bellerive is only one of three schools in the country to receive this honor so far.


Nearly 4,000 schools worldwide participate in The Leader in Me program, which was founded by the Franklin Covey Co., but only 420 of them have earned Lighthouse certification. The recognition honors schools for achieving outstanding results in student and school outcomes by implementing Leader in Me processes and for the extraordinary impact the school is having on students, parents, staff and the greater community.


Bellerive is in its seventh year of being a Leader in Me school. The program is based on Stephen Covey’s “Seven Habits of Highly Effective People” and teaches leadership and life skills to students while creating a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.
