Welcome to the Green Tree East Leadership Academy family. We are excited to partner with students, families, staff and the community to make Green Tree East Leadership Academy a place where our students can grow and learn.  At Green Tree, our mission is to  provide all students with the academic skills, experiences, and support necessary to enter college and the career workforce with a highly developed set of leadership skills. We believe 21st century leaders inspire and empower the next generation.

As a Leadership school we nurture in each student the 8 HABITS OF LEADERS:

1. BE PROACTIVE - I have a “CAN DO “attitude, make good decisions and do the right things even when no one is looking

2. BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND - I plan ahead and set goals

3. PUT FIRST THINGS FIRST - I spend time on things that are most important first

4. THINK WIN-WIN - I want everyone to be a success

5. SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND, THEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD - I listen to other’s ideas and feel-ings without interrupting

6. SYNERGIZE - I get along well with others, even people who are different than me—Together is better!

7. SHARPEN THE SAW - I take care of my body by eating right, exercising, and getting sleep

8. FIND YOUR VOICE AND INSPIRE OTHERS TO FIND THEIRS - I use my talents and excitement to make a difference in the world 

We look forward to working with you in creating bright futures for our students
