Welcome from Jeff Eller, High School Principal
Greetings on behalf of the LCS High School faculty. We take great pride in the opportunity to work with students on a daily basis on our campus. We challenge our students both in and outside of the classroom with an established program that engages students in many ways to develop their mind, body, social-emotional abilities, and spirit.
We endeavor every day to produce students who are equipped to succeed academically, socially and emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Our graduates leave LCS to attend some of the very best universities in the world, but more importantly they are well equipped to thrive in every aspect of life.
Across all three divisions at Lincoln Community School we are all dedicated to the mission of our school to be a “learning focused”, “leading”, and a “connected”school. The High School division is no exception to that focus. We demonstrate that commitment in the following ways:
The High School division offers two academic programmes to its students. Students in Grades 9 & 10 are engaged in the last two years of the 5 year Middle Years Programme (MYP). Students in the MYP curriculum take 6 core subjects and 2 electives to make up their 8 course schedule.
Students in Grades 11-12 are engaged in the IB Diploma Programme (IBDP) which is a challenging two-year curriculum, primarily aimed at students aged 16 to 19. It leads to a qualification that is widely recognized by the world’s leading universities. The LCS DP faculty is a very experienced group of educators who come from nations all around the world
In the High School Division students are provided a variety of types of support both in terms of their academic and social emotional development. We have a HS Counseling Department made up of two counselors in the HS division that provide social emotional support as well as opportunities to explore career and university guidance. Additionally the HS department provides additional academic support to students through our Academic Resource Center (ARC).
Students are provided a number of opportunities to demonstrate leadership in the High School. Some pursue leading opportunities within our well organized and diverse Athletics Programme as we participate in a range of sports within the West Africa International Schools Activities League (WAISAL). Additionally, students participate in a range of after school activities and school clubs that made up our diverse Activities Programme.
High School students connect to the outside work through their commitment to our service program. Reaching out beyond the walls of the academy, engaged learners uncover personal talents, discover the ethical implications of their life and actions, and build an awareness of and empathy for the common challenges facing humanity.
I hope you enjoy browsing through our school website and that you gain an insight into all aspects of our “community”. We hope to have the opportunity to meet with you in person and give you first-hand experience of our school life in action.
