Leadership Prep School is the P.L.A.C.E. to be
Our Mission … is to inspire students to learn, grow, and lead for a lifetime.
Our Vision ... includes five cornerstones:
We believe parents are the chief educators of their children and need to be
actively involved in their child’s school experience. Strong partnerships
between parents and our school fosters clear and consistent communication
and creates a united approach to each child’s success. Parents are
encouraged to attend training seminars, observe their child in the classroom,
and serve the school in some capacity. By creating these bonds, parents
are empowered, the school is strengthened and our students are successful.
Our culture is centered around leadership, with a curriculum that teaches
students to make choices that are intentional and thoughtful. Our students
are taught that every decision they make has consequences for themselves
and others. As they learn to lead themselves, our students embrace the
idea they can leave a lasting impression on the world around them by
accepting leadership opportunities in their professions, their organizations,
their communities, and their world.
At LPS, learning is transformational. Teachers are empowered to use
best teaching practices and embrace creativity in their rooms. Diverse
teaching practices expose students to a variety of learning experiences:
small groups, field trips, hands-on activities, guest speakers, and one-on-one
instruction are just some of the ways our students receive instruction.
Individual student needs are taken into account, maximizing each child’s
success. Every child, regardless of ability, is valued and given maximal
opportunities to learn. For students with special needs (ELL/ESL, learning
disabilities, etc.), we develop an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) to
equip each child for the future.
Our teachers are encouraged to bring their unique experience and
ideas into their classrooms. Because their rooms are filled with diverse
learners, teachers are empowered to use different teaching models and
methods. Creativity is not used simply for creativity’s sake, but as a
means to increase student engagement and learning.
Our school is a center of excellence. Faculty and staff are held to a high
standard of excellence and incorporate our vision into everything they do.
Students are held to a high level academically, and are also expected to
demonstrate appropriate, positive behavior. As our students learn to lead
themselves, we believe that they will become standards of excellence in
their own right, rather than simply conforming to one.
