Strong in Every Way

Strong in Every Way is an ongoing initiative of the Zionsville Community Schools begun in the fall of 2016 with the goal of building connected, resilient, self and culturally adept young people during their formative years in our school community. Strong in Every Way (SIEW) is a decision-making and directional vehicle for our organization that is made up of three domains: Developing Connections, Developing Assets and Resources, and Developing Cultural Understandings.
