Mechanics Grove School is proud to be a Lighthouse "Leader in Me" School. There are currently 101 "Leader in Me Schools" worldwide. We believe that leadership develops through using the right habits and tools designed for achieving an individual's success. We know that every child who enters our doorway has unique talents and gifts. Our job is to help children clearly see that they have these innate gifts and to use these gifts in learning, leading, living and leaving a legacy. At Mechanics Grove School, we believe that our teachers are the models of leadership by their actions, their words, and their teaching. Leadership means learning to take responsibility for your actions, your relationships, and academic and life's success. Respect, responsibility, and habits that lead to quality relationships or interdependence are ubiquitously woven into instruction throughout the day. Children learn to self-manage and lead themselves first. We teach children to manage their academics and set personal goals through leadership notebooks. Children learn how to set goals, track their progress by keeping their assessments and data scores, all the while they learn to collaborate with their teachers to create a map designed to achieve these goals. Celebrations are exciting events when these goals have been reached. We have created a culture that develops the whole child—emotional, social, academic, cultural, and physical fitness! Our faculty is committed to creating a positive climate that nurtures kindness, service, empathy and compassion.
