The genuine interest students have for learning allows for more of the coveted "ah-ha" moments that make teaching a rich occupation. These energized students, and their highly supportive parents, motivate us to keep the curriculum dynamic. It's a win-win recipe for all of us.
This past year we hired two new faculty in the science department. In both cases, LCDS conducted national searches to find the best candidates for those openings. While we did search locally, the ability to recruit at the national level allowed us to bring two very talented and dedicated professionals into our school. Our students reap the benefits of those efforts.
Upper School Faculty
The teachers want you to be successful and to be able to love what they are teaching. They are always willing to help you with projects, class work or just outside advice in general. In my AP U.S. history class, there was a lot of challenge, but there was always room for a laugh as well.

We send our kids to LCDS because the academic program is excellent, the faculty is bright and uniquely committed, the student-teacher ratio is very low, and the philosophy and values of the school are consistent with ours. The school is like a family -- all of the children feel at home.
