What does it mean to be a Lighthouse School?

At our school Leadership is a LIFESTYLE, not a lesson!  
Kyrene de los Cerritos is proud to be a Stephen Covey, Leader In Me School.  In 2012, we were recognized as the 27th school, worldwide, with the honor of being a Leader in Me Lighthouse School. As a Leader in Me School, students discover and practice a set of leadership and life skills from Stephen Covey’s book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.  Leader in Me schools receive national recognition for their emphasis on developing leadership in young children.

In our school, EVERY child possesses unique strengths and has the ability to be a leader! 
Incorporating The Leader in Me practices within our school’s environment and curriculum empowers students with the leadership and life skills they need to thrive in the 21st Century.  Our children demonstrate critical skills and characteristics such as: trustworthiness, a strong work ethic, motivation, problem-solving skills, goal setting, effective interpersonal skills, a sense of teamwork, academic achievement and valuing diversity.  Our goal is to develop the WHOLE child socially, emotionally, academically and ethically to ensure they are leaders today that inspire leaders tomorrow!
