Odyssey Elementary is proud to be a Leader in Me School. Leader in Me is a whole-school improvement framework focused on building leadership and personal responsibility skills in every student and staff member. This evidence-based approach empowers students with the life skills they need to thrive in the 21st century. We focus on developing the whole child by:

  • teaching LEADERSHIP to every student,

  • creating a CULTURE of student empowerment,

  • and aligning systems to drive results in ACADEMICS.
