Reavis, Charles A.; Vinson, David; Fox, Richard
Clearing House, v72 n4 p199-202 Mar-Apr 1999
Examines how a new principal at a historically low-performing high school brought about changes in the school culture and in student achievement. Describes how the principal emphasized achievement at the highest levels through heroes and heroines, rites and rituals, stories, governance and leadership, symbols, enforcing expectations, and serving as the "high priest" of the high-achievement culture.
