Only a handful of schools across the globe have received the “Leader in Me Legacy Schools” distinction. It is a significant accomplishment for both schools, but it is especially noteworthy for the Vicksburg Warren School District, as it is the only district in the world to have two legacy schools within its boundaries.

The “Leader in Me” program is designed to teach students leadership skills that they can use in all aspects of their lives.
