How did LCA students wrap up 2019?
Our students shone in the Iowa Assessments, averaging individually in the 88th percentile nationally. LCA students who tested in both 2018 and 2019 showed an average gain of 1.7 grades per year. We also had 7 students in grades 2-7 take the national HSK test in Chinese, a high-school test for Mandarin as a second language; they all scored 100% in one or both segments! We can’t wait to see what accomplishments the new academic year holds!
So what’s in store for 2020?
Individualized assessment for each student, to determine placement at the appropriate level based on their subject-specific competency.
Small class sizes with lots of individual attention for each student.
Frequent mental breaks for recess, PE, and snacks to encourage better attention spans and quality learning time when in class. They are also are emotionally supported by caring teachers and our strong anti-bullying policy.
Bonus! LCA students can arrive as early as 7:30 AM and stay as late as 5:30 PM, both for the convenience of working parents and for the students’ enrichment in after-school clubs and in socialization: win-win!
