middle years program (Grades 6-8)
welcome to “camp” middle school
Thriving through exploratory, hands-on learning.
Guided by best practices in middle years education, our teachers provide learning experiences that foster a strong, supported transition from elementary to high school.
Our teaching is hands-on, minds engaged, future focused, community orientated and intentionally builds experiences and relationships that are remembered for a lifetime.
exploring the middle years
In addition to teaching the province’s revised 6-8 curriculum, the middle years program at LCS encourages students to engage in a wide range of exploratory learning opportunities.
These opportunities emphasize essential hands-on learning in STEM areas (sciences, technology, engineering, mathematics) and are designed to help develop passions students can continue pursuing in their high school electives.
