Spark School practices the Leader in Me process, an Award-Winning Leadership Training. We encourage students to take on leadership roles that develop their future-ready skills. Our program provides a challenging and interactive environment where all the members of our community have the chance to become leaders of self and others.
At Spark School, all the students have the opportunity to take on leadership roles. We encourage and support students to discover their voice, and their character. Students have the opportunity to explore and take the initiative in leading their projects, knowing that we are there to support them.
Students can translate the principles from the Leader in Me courses into real-life through various means in SPARK. They can take part in IDEAS Student Societies: Internationalism, Democracy, Environment, Adventure, and Service.
Apart from personal development, all leadership roles become part of our students’ portfolios, showing evidence of their development as people with effectiveness. This becomes especially important when applying for university and having to stand out from thousands of applicants. A strong portfolio can be the key to being admitted to top universities in the world.
