LEADERSHIP ACADEMY EXPERIENCE

At STEM International we follow the highly reputed leadership curriculum LEADER IN ME from the FranklinCovey Institute. Content from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is a key component of the overall Leader in Me process. 7 habits namely; Being proactive, begin with the end in mind, think win-win, seek first to understand before being understood, first things first, synergy and sharpen the saw are at the core of the Leadership program- The Influence Program.
STEM International School offers this program for students from 3yrs to 12th grade. This student-oriented institution prepares young minds for effective leadership in the 21st century through hands-on learning. Business, political, and educational leaders are increasingly asking schools to teach students skills in problem-solving, critical thinking, communication, creativity, and collaboration. Such skills are often referred to as “21st century skills” essential to any future leaders.
