Safe and Positive Schools

Fostering a safe and positive school culture is just as important as a rigorous academic program. 

Students are most successful in a school environment where they are surrounded by supportive teachers and classmates.

skills to succeed

Today’s economy is now driven by technology and innovation—and students must develop skills to compete in a global economy.  

Learn how LESD is transforming our classrooms into environments that foster and develop 21st century skills below. 

Our elementary schools have STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Makerspaces and our middle schools have state-of-the art Library Media Centers and 1:1 computer programs.

Through the use of technology, students, teachers, and families can maintain connections and extend learning. 

Our classrooms are set up to support group work and partnerships for collaborative discussions.  The focus on academic discourse builds interpersonal and critical thinking skills, and lays the foundation to express thinking and solve problems collaboratively creatively—and innovatively!

Our teachers are trained to implement techniques to increase the time our students spend in productive partnerships, using academic language to build on each others’ ideas and develop their own thoughts.  

In the past, different content areas (such as mathematics and literature) were taught as separate and distinct subjects.  Today, we see more connectivity between science and literature, math and the arts.  

Our new curriculum in language arts and mathematics reflects the connectivity of different areas of study.   New curricula incorporate the Next Generation Science Standards.


Our curricula are designed to be academically stimulating—encouraging creativity, providing hands-on opportunities, and—most importantly, engaging our students!

We are proud to instill in our students a life-long passion for learning as they successfully prepare for high school, college, and beyond.
