Miller Heights became a Leader in Me school during the 2016-2017 school year. Leader in Me is based on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey and The 7 Habits of Happy Kids by Sean Covey. During the first year of the program, Miller Heights Elementary focused on Leadership and Culture. Our “Buddy Bench” helps students make new friends and work together to solve problems. Academics was the focus of the 2017-2018 school year, and Sustaining Momentum was our focus during 2018-2019.

The 7 Habits are:

  1. Be proactive.
  2. Begin with the end in mind.
  3. Put first things first.
  4. Think win-win.
  5. Seek first to understand, then to be understood.
  6. Synergize.
  7. Sharpen the saw.
