TCU Lonsdale Elementary: Leaders RISE Here!

At TCU Lonsdale Elementary, we believe that social and emotional development is equally as important as academic learning. In order to provide a solid foundation for this learning, we are transforming into a Leader in Me school.


What is The Leader in Me?

The Leader in Me is a whole school transformation model that empowers students with the skills they need to thrive in the 21st century. Distinct in several ways, The Leader in Me:

  • Starts from a powerful premise- that every child possesses unique strengths and has the ability to be a leader- and therefore affirms the views of our staff to value and develop the whole child. 
  • Integrates leadership development into our existing school programs to improve relationships, transform culture, and increase motivation.
  • Impacts all stakeholders starting first with our staff, then moving to our students, their families, and the community at large. 
The Leader in Me is our commitment to transforming how our school community approaches education and redefines for us what school greatness means in the 21st century. This school greatness is represented through our leadership, culture, and academic excellence.
