First school in Hawaii to achieve distinction
Lehua Elementary has been named a Lighthouse School in The Leader in Me program, a rigorous three-year certification of integrating leadership across nine areas.
Lehua is the first school in Hawaii to achieve this status, and only the 45th in the world.
The Leader in Me is a schoolwide transformation model that acts like the operating system of a computer — it improves performance of all other programs. It produces transformational results such as higher academic achievement, fewer discipline problems and increased engagement among teachers and parents, while equipping students with the self-confidence and skills they need to thrive in the 21st century economy.
Funding for this program was made possible through grants by the Joint Venture Education Forum, which is comprised of public school educators, and leaders from the military, business, government and community.
