Kyrene de los Cerritos Leadership Academy
Kyrene de la Mirada Leadership Academy
K-5 students at Cerritos and Mirada will lead their own learning through ongoing progress checks, data notebooks and developing effective habits in their lives to positively impact learning. This system incorporates principles from author, Sean Covey’s 7 Habits of Happy Kids. Students’ talents are fostered, highlighted and developed while students take ownership in their learning. In addition, students use data to set attainable goals, interpret areas of need/strengths and track their own progress. Kyrene Altadeña Middle School and Kyrene del Pueblo Middle School will carry on the 7 Habits of Happy Kids principals as students move into 6-8th grades.
Leadership Academy prepares children with 21st century skills by fostering:
  • Synergy with team and whole staff
  • A focus on personal leadership
  • Student communication (decreasing behavior concerns)
  • Greater sense of community
  • A more proactive environment
  • Excitement for learning
  • Responsibility
  • Development of the whole child (intellectual, emotional, social)
  • Goal setting through data based learning
