Greetings on behalf of the LCS High School faculty. We challenge and nurture our students with a rich academic and co-curricular program that engages them to develop their mind, body, social-emotional abilities, and spirit. 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 dedicated to the mission of being a school that is “learning focused, leading, and connected”. In the High School we demonstrate that commitment in the following ways:
The High School division offers two academic programmes. Students in Grades 9 & 10 are engaged in the last two years of the 5 year IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) and take 6 core subjects and 2 electives to make up their 8-course schedule. Click here to review our Grade 9-10 course offerings.
Students in Grades 11-12 follow the IB Diploma Programme (IBDP) which is a challenging two-year curriculum, primarily aimed at students aged 16 to 19. Click here to review our Grade 11-12 course offerings. It leads to a qualification that is widely recognized by the world’s leading universities.
In the High School Division, students are provided a variety of support in their academic and social-emotional development. The Student Support Services team provides additional academic support to students through our Academic Resource Center (ARC). We have a HS Counseling Department made up of two counselors that provide social-emotional support as well as opportunities to explore career and university guidance.
Students are provided a number of opportunities to demonstrate leadership in the High School. Some pursue opportunities to lead within our well organized and diverse Athletics Programme as we participate in a range of sports and activities within the West Africa International Schools Activities League (WAISAL). Additionally, students participate in a range of after-school activities and school clubs that make up our diverse Activities and Service programme.
High School students connect to the outside world through their commitment to our service program. Reaching out beyond the walls of LCS, 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.
We hope you enjoy browsing our school website and that you gain an insight into all aspects of our community. Additionally, we hope to have the opportunity to meet you in person and give you a first-hand account of our school in action.
