If your school is seeking change, it's worth considering what metaphor best reflects your intentions.

For example:

Are you looking to renovate your house?

Are you looking to go on a journey?

Two very different metaphors. One isn't necessarily better than the other, but one will better match your intentions.

Which raises the most important question of all: is everyone on the same page about what metaphor you're after?
