The Gerstell Academy Motto and Leadership Principles and Attributes are the foundation of the leadership program. Every member of the community, faculty, staff, students, and parents understand and live by each element. Repetition, review, practice, and exploration of these elements are continuous. The five academic areas of leadership are integrated into the academic curriculum. Leadership is studied from a functional perspective. This perspective allows us to capture specific experiences, events, and practices that are used to develop each student to reach their maximum potential.
