5 Essentials


The 5Essentials® is a research-based school improvement system that defines, measures, and utilizes the most important organizational conditions, including aspects of a school’s culture and climate, to improve student outcomes.  

Specifically, the 5Essentials is an improvement framework and diagnostic survey with research-tested scoring and interactive reporting that provides insights into schools’ organizational strengths and areas of opportunity across the five essential factors for school improvement: Effective Leaders, Collaborative Teachers, Involved Families, Supportive Environment, and Ambitious Instruction. The system also includes professional learning designed to help educators leverage 5Essentials data to inform improvement planning and drive improved school and student outcomes.

News & Events

Gower Hearts at Work has been a tradition since 1992. Rather than purchase a gift for someone at school, parents and friends have the option of donating money to Gower Hearts at Work. The Gower staff endorses the idea of giving donations to Gower Hearts at Work instead of receiving gifts. The staff enjoys the personalized gift certificates generated by the Student Council when a donation is made in their name.
