The Wing is Almost Complete!

Construction on the wing is almost complete. Three classrooms and our library will be moving in over the long weekend.  We are excited to fully utilize all of our amazing new spaces in the way they were intended. Also, our basketball court will be in ready for action in just a few days as well. We are very grateful for these wonderful new additions to our community space!

Leadership’s Schoolwarming Party

Friends and alumni of LHS, please mark your calendars to come to 350 Seneca (same site, different address than 2001-2006) and warm up our school. We will have light refreshments, student and alumni performances, and school tours. This event is for adults only, so please leave current students at home!
