The Leader In Me
The Leader In Me
Learners and Leaders for a Lifetime!

In the fall of 2014, the Dixon faculty and staff decided to adopt the Franklin Covey program entitled The Leader in Me to enhance our academic program and transform our school and scholars! 

Based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective PeopleThe Leader in Me equips students with the self-confidence and skills they need to realize their own self-worth and potential and work towards excellence everyday.

What would be possible if our school were filled with students who were responsible, who showed initiative, who were creative, who knew how to set goals and meet them, who got along with people of various backgrounds and cultures, and who could resolve conflicts and solve problems?

This is reality at Leader in Me schools across the country. Parents, community stakeholders, business and government leaders, as well as students and educators believe that schools should provide opportunities for students to develop their full potential through:

  • Leadership
  • Accountability
  • Adaptability
  • Initiative and Self-Direction
  • Cross-Cultural Skills
  • Responsibility
  • Problem Solving
  • Communication
  • Creativity
  • Teamwork

Teaching the 7 Habits not as a curriculum, but in a ubiquitous fashion, integrating them into the curriculum, traditions, systems, and culture of our school will enable our scholars to truly transform themselves with leadership abilities that will nurture success in life!
