Student Voices Shaping the LCS Experience

In the past two months, Head of School Anne Marie Kee has been actively engaging with our students, fostering open conversations and gathering valuable insights about their LCS experience. In her commitment to connecting with each student, Ms. Kee organized informal meetings with house groups, providing a comfortable setting for discussions. These interactions took place during either pontoon boat rides on Lake Katchewanooka or dinners at our Northcote Campus.

During these sessions, students openly shared their thoughts on various aspects of school life. They discussed potential changes and highlighted what they believe is working well at LCS this year. Ms. Kee dedicated nearly 30 hours to these conversations, emphasizing the importance of student input in shaping their educational environment.

The feedback from students covered a range of topics, with popular requests including additional Sunday options, more music in the dining hall, extended Sunday curfew, more open house days, extra internet connections in houses, permission to leave before 7am for workouts, and requests related to athletics and learning programs. Amidst these suggestions for improvements, students also expressed positive remarks about their experiences at LCS. They appreciated spirit wear on Saturdays, the limited frequency of formal dress days, the balance between modules and workload, the intimacy of small classes, and the ample outdoor activities provided. Additionally, the half days on Wednesdays and Saturdays were well-received by the student body.

In response to the feedback, Ms. Kee expressed her gratitude for the thoughtful and honest input from the students. She encouraged everyone to take responsibility in 'being the change' they wish to see in the LCS community, emphasizing the collective effort needed to make LCS the best it can be.

We deeply appreciate the active involvement of our students in shaping their own educational experience. Their candid feedback and valuable insights play a pivotal role in making LCS a vibrant and inclusive community where every voice is heard and respected. Together, we can continue to foster an environment that reflects the collective aspirations and visions of our student body, ensuring LCS remains a place where learning thrives and individuality is celebrated. Thank you to our students for their active engagement and commitment to making our school the best it can be.
