Pickett’s Mill Elementary opened in 2008 as a Leader in Me School. We implement a leadership model based on Steven Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. We achieved Lighthouse Status in 2013, which is the highest honor awarded to Leader in Me schools. If you’d like to know more about Leader in Me, you can click here.

We are a STEM certified school. Teachers implement STEM in their classrooms. Part of this process includes students receiving STEM lessons in our STEM Lab, as well as STEM challenges in the classroom environment. We have quarterly STEM days and monthly at-home STEM challenges.
