Why the Wellbeing of the School Head Matters

It can be easy to put the needs of others before your own when you're the School Head. Teachers, staff, students, parents, and board members all need your attention and care, and it feels like there are never enough hours in a day.

Research proves that the well-being of the School Head can have a profound impact on the school.

ISM just released a research study that analyzed how the well-being of the School Head truly influences school outcomes. The study includes impacts on faculty culture, student enrollment, and the Head's own long-term success.

The study examined the survey results of 131 School Heads who had an average length of 25 years in education.

The results confirm the correlation between the School Head's wellbeing and overall school performance, including improved faculty culture and enrollment demand.

How many times have you arrived at school and, before you knew it, it was already 2 p.m. and you hadn't eaten anything that day? Suddenly you're starving, so you dig into a bag of chips or box of cookies to stave off hunger.

Stay balanced to help do your best for your students and your school.
