Lakeland Christian School’s Middle School program provides a caring environment to nurture young adolescents through these formative years. Located on the third floor of the Elementary/Middle School Building, the entire program encourages character development and focuses on biblical principles for building life relationships.
In the middle school at LCS, our goal is to provide a safe place where we can partner with parents to help guide students through a challenging time of life. This can be an exciting time when many changes are taking place. We want students to successfully transition from the dependence of middle school to the independence of high school. We emphasize personal responsibility.
The curriculum reinforces the basics of the elementary program and prepares students for the rigors of high school academics. Math, science, English, social studies, physical education and Bible are taught at each level. Advanced courses in math and science are also offered. Students select electives including band, choir, art and computers.
At LCS we use technology as an accelerator of learning. All students in grades 6-8 participate in a “bring-your-own-device” 1:1 iPad program. The program uses digital curriculum materials, student collaboration tools, and individualized instruction in all subject areas with the goal of enhancing student learning.
In addition to academic preparation, students have ample opportunity to participate in co-curricular activities in a variety of sports, music programs, and leadership opportunities such as Junior National Honor Society and student government.
