Course Overview
Students taking this course will study leadership and how it works as well as practice developing and using leadership in their lives.  The primary focus of our leadership at school will be creating and maintaining student and staff recognition programs.  We will work behind-the-scenes to improve the climate at WVHS for all those who spend time here and to help more and more of the WVHS community feel valued, recognized and appreciated for what they do.  We’ll measure our success by school wide statistics and attitudes…improving GPAs, improved attendance, reduced tardies, more student involvement and engagement, teacher attitudes and involvement, etc.
