What do the principals of Frazier International Magnet School in Chicago, Illinois, The SEED School of Washington, D.C., and George Hall Elementary in Mobile, Alabama have in common? They know the secrets of creating a high‑performing school culture. These schools are the successful exceptions, or outliers, since they succeed when others with similar challenges consistently struggle.
In this inspiring book, Cathy Lassiter shares three secrets, based on research from a variety of fields, which can transform a school's culture from low‑performing to high‑performing. Added to the three secrets are three simple truths that every school leader knows, but few implement consistently. The simple truths of successful leadership in challenging schools are powerful practices that impact student learning on a daily basis. Leaders who know and act upon these truths improve their schools in even the most difficult environments.
Not only will readers learn the secrets and simple truths to creating a high‑performing culture in their schools, but they will understand how to apply their learning. The author provides practical, easy to implement strategies for each of the secrets and simple truths.
