LCS is seeking teachers who are passionate about education—their own as well as their students’. LCS educators love and respect children, are committed to meeting the needs of all students, thrive in a collaborative, collegial environment as part of a team of professionals, and inspire their students to be curious, critical learners.

The mission statement is the starting point for everything at LCS. Our LCS Learning Principles define what high quality teaching and learning look like, inspire learning, and frame the teacher supervision process.
