North Cedar Overview

North Cedar was the first school to implement Leader in Me in the Cedar Valley. North Cedar Elementary has been the model of what a leadership culture should be in a school. By empowering students to be engaged as leaders, it has in turn empowered them to become more effective as learners.

  • Leader in Me has helped North Cedar students become more engaged in their own learning and helped students to make notable academic improvement
  • North Cedar aligns their individual student goals and classroom-level goals with their school-wide goals. The school-wide goals for the 2014-2015 school year relate to building vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension.
  • Students shine at North Cedar. Educators look for and nurture ALL students’ talents and gifts.
  • Students at North Cedar lead their own conferences two times a year, by sharing progress on their individual goals, academic growth, and their leadership roles.
