Summit Elementary’s mission is to prepare children to excel and lead in the 21st century. Located in rural WY, Summit is a Leader in Me Lighthouse School and Ashoka ChangeMaker School, where students play roles in school-wide leadership, classroom leadership, and through teaching leadership skills to their peers. In Summit’s kid counsel, students are fully responsible for running and editing a podcast to provide news, tips about the 7 habits from Leader in Me, as well as informing students about upcoming job applications.
