Developing leadership is embedded in the culture of the school. We aim to provide all senior students with opportunities, responsibilities and assistance to grow their own individual leadership qualities. These aspiring leaders, who are our country’s future, respond to role descriptions, apply for and are interviewed as part of the process. The students are invested and understand how these skills can be a great base for their future.

I wanted to be a leader because it feels good to be referred to as a role model and I also wanted to represent the school since I’ve been here for 7 years. – Cooper H
