Cacique means leader in Lucayan. Here at The Island School five students are selected each week to take on the role of "cacique" and serve as the face of the community . These student leaders, or caciques, work with faculty and their peers to ensure that the community stays on task throughout the day. On any given day you can witness caciques running morning circle, planning weekend activities, participating in student duty and much more. The Island School is thrilled to introduce Spring 2015's first set of caciques. Congrats and cheers to a fantastic semester ahead! SP15_HighRock-8
