What is Student Leadership?

  • Student Council is a course on the student's schedule entitled, Student Leadership. 

    Student Leadership is a course for students who seek opportunities to expand and deepen their group and individual leadership skills to positively impact their own lives and community. Building on collaborative skills and habits of mind, students gain knowledge and expertise in leadership skills including goal setting, effective communication, organization, time management, and collaborative strategies. 

    Student Leadership prepares students not only for active participation in school but also in their community. Students solve relevant and current school and community issues by working collaboratively and independently on high-level, real-world tasks such as project proposals, portfolios, and presentations. The course is adaptable across various student needs and student populations. In some schools, the course is customized to meet the needs of formal student organizations such as student council.
