KISJ leaders believe that their students will create positive change around the world. Their roles, responsibilities, and results are rooted in this vision. Together we model the beliefs and values embedded in the DRAGONS.
KISJ leaders are consummate professionals and employ best-researched practices in teaching and learning. They are leaders of learning and demonstrate this by modeling expectations and providing rich and varied learning opportunities to ensure challenging and positive experiences. We embrace a standards-referenced approach to planning, grading, and communicating learning. Leaders are fully engaged in the learning community at KISJ and collaborate effectively with teachers, coaches and coordinators across various grade levels, subject areas, and divisions. KISJ leaders are lifelong learners who engage in professional growth and development through the coaching process, consistent reflection and reiteration of their practices. The ideal candidate is open to feedback and willing to grow. KISJ leaders enthusiastically embrace the ongoing school improvement process through their active service in focus groups. The leadership team champion the DRAGONS and are positive members of a dynamic community of learners.
