Yes, children at LHK develop a great love for learning, and they are focused. LHK graduates go on to prestigious schools and careers; many graduates attribute their success to their time at LHK, where they developed the curiosity, solid work habits and collaboration skills that last a lifetime.
When you visit, you will have an opportunity to tour our campus and see children at work and play throughout the school. The teacher is not at the front of the room, but rather moves throughout the room, giving lessons to individual children or small groups. Independent and collaborative work creates a busy hum of activity as children engage in a variety of different activities, each of which is designed to build a specific skill.
LHK benefits from the involvement and support of the parent community, and there are many opportunities for parents to contribute. These include helping with purposeful field trips for the elementary students, assisting teachers with making materials etc.
Yes, LHK has a catered lunch program available. This lunch is available every school day. The lunches are tasty and healthy, and are prepared as part of a “farm to school” philosophy, using largely locally grown food. Vegetarian options are available. Contact the school for more information.
