Chattahoochee has created a game-changing student leadership program putting the 7 Mindsets into action. “iChangers” uniquely focuses on teaching leadership skills through community service with an emphasis on student interest and accountability.

The program is designed to create a school climate of service and social emotional awareness. This interview with Instructional Coach Beth Perryman shares the basics and history of iChangers, with a glimpse at where the program is heading.


This year, 7 Mindsets explores seven amazing schools from across the United States. With a professional film crew in tow, our intention is to capture each community’s unique journey, while finding best practices in common for social and emotional learning (SEL).

The first is Chattahoochee Elementary in Cumming, GA: a rural school with a unique recipe for cultural transformation. This school has seen considerable transition and growth in its student population, prompting cultural changes that were aligned with its SEL implementation.
