Leader in Me at Edgerton

Edgerton Local Schools is proud to be on a journey toward becoming a Leader In Me Lighthouse School. The Leader in Me is a whole-school improvement process based on the idea that everyone can be a leader. This evidence-based approach empowers students with the leadership and life-skills they need to thrive in the 21st century. By developing the WHOLE-child; socially, emotionally, academically and ethically, we will foster a school climate that promotes greatness! 

Our Mission Statement:

By creating a focus on Leadership our school culture has improved and our students are not only learning the academic lessons they need but also acquiring the social-emotional skills they need for their future.
