"Leaders relentlessly develop and pursue the school’s vision, goals and targets for equity and excellence. They have worked to build relational trust at all levels of the school and community to support openness, risk taking and collaboration for improvement. A shared understanding of effective systems and processes has led to school-wide coherence in teaching and management practices."
