LCS is a parent-initiated school that strives to build a creative, academically challenging and emotionally nurturing environment for our children – one that embraces and celebrates the diversity of languages and cultures in our urban community while retaining the close-knit feel of a neighborhood school. We are a school of choice and offer an alternative option to the traditional public school curriculum.
