Forging a Brighter Future

Curriculum

LCIS is small enough to remain flexible to accommodate all learners and provides a peaceful rural school setting that maintains a strong sense of community. The LCIS curriculum places strong emphasis on language arts, reading comprehension, and math skills. The LCIS mission is to help students revise and deepen knowledge in these content areas to achieve mastery in preparing students for future academic challenges and for career readiness.  As well, LCIS offers an exposure to foreign language beginning in the elementary grades so students will be actively engaged in a bilingual learning platform as they enter, interact, and compete in a global environment. Character development, citizenship skills, and personalized instructional strategies will be working platforms at every grade level. A holistic approach to instruction is incorporated by all instructors that goes beyond academics to give students coping skills, increase self-esteem, and to manage adversity.

All students are engaged in hands-on learning opportunities in all facets of the curriculum. Students are engaged in STEAM-related projects-based learning opportunities. This approach will blend science, technology, engineering, arts and math to replicate real-world experiences. School personnel engage students in many dynamic projects, including such things as Legos, robotics, and other technologies to cultivate and advance their creative imaginations.

School personnel use both the indoor classroom setting and the world outside as learning venues. Among the varied outdoor school-related activities, school personnel plan to use the F2T, Farm to Table, program as a means to help students learn about food groups, plants, vegetables and gardening. School personnel will also take students on outdoor excursions to explore science and nature. The staff wants the universe to be the playground of instruction for students.

LCIS is carefully designed to ensure that parents have a critical voice in the school’s governance and operation. The school wants to partner with parents as, together, we help their children.
