Leadership & Character Development

Independence has established the mission of developing students who possess an exceptional spirit for learning, leadership and citizenship. These outcomes happen as a result of a purposeful focus on the necessary skills and qualities that will lead to success in future roles as students, employees, citizens and community members.  

This focus begins in preschool and continues throughout each grade level at Independence, as we integrate social and emotional learning (SEL) with the teaching and modeling of our core values of respectresponsibility and integrity.

Under the umbrella of the Leadership Curriculum are lessons and programs specific to character development. The Leadership Curriculum expands as students grow, presenting many rich opportunities to experience roles of responsibility, such as Student Ambassadors, Student Government Association representatives, and as athletes and musicians.
