Holladay ES named “Leader in Me” Lighthouse School


Henrico's Holladay Elementary School has achieved an advanced designation for its accomplishments in the “Leader in Me” program, a schoolwide transformation process that teaches leadership and skills for living.

The company also cited the impact of the school’s efforts on Holladay’s staff, students, parents and the larger community.

Fewer than 200 of the 2,500 schools that have adopted the schoolwide transformational leadership model have achieved Lighthouse certification. The designation is attained by further integrating the program into the school’s environment, and by achieving measureable results in areas such as teacher engagement, parent satisfaction, student behavior and academics.

It recognizes collaborative, from-the-ground-up efforts of teachers, administrators, students, parents and community leaders to make music education accessible to all students.

This year the group recognized 476 school systems out of the more than 2,000 that submitted data.
