Only 300 schools have the honor of being a "The Leader in Me Lighthouse School" — and Murfreesboro's Mitchell-Neilson recently received that recognition.

Mitchell-Neilson School garners “The Leader in Me Lighthouse School” title by Franklin Covey Co. Only 300 schools have achieved this prestigious milestone worldwide. The school is awarded this status after showing results in school and student outcomes using The Leader in Me process.

It’s an integrated approach to leadership development that helps the students develop the knowledge, skills and character necessary to achieve their highest potential and to be productive members of an ever-changing society.
