At St. Louis pupils practice democracy where they focus on the responsibilities they will shoulder as adults. Individuals take on accountable positions, show initiative and decisions, taking charge and having the skill to lead oneself, not looking to blame others but to accept responsibility and the tasks of building a team as they aspire to excel.
Our students are not divided into leaders and followers, or those with worth and those without. All can acquire values and virtues. At St. Louis schools, leadership is a form of service to others.
