Special Programs (ESE)

At Lakeland Christian School, we recognize that students have different academic needs and often learn at different paces. Mild learning disabilities and/or attention issues can be frustrating and discouraging for students. Through the Special Programs/Exceptional Student Education (ESE) Department, LCS seeks to assist these students.

The ESE program is designed to provide a resource setting for students with mild disabilities who can mainstream into the regular classroom.  Students in first through twelfth grade can benefit from these services.
