A quote from a student
"Communication, decision making, and problem solving, those are the three most important things I learned at The Leadership School of Kieve. Everyone of those things apply to not only my school life but my life outside of school as well. Knowing decision making skills, communication, and problem solving help me to figure out what my success is. "
