G.S. Lakie Middle School has developed a responsive middle school that promotes high expectations of success. Our school is committed to the understanding that young adolescents are capable of far more than adults often assume. We at G.S. Lakie feel that attaining positive educational and individual success is dependent on the flexibility and the quality of the programs provided for young adolescents.
We believe that middle level educators make conscious choices to work with young adolescents. They understand the developmental uniqueness of young adolescents and are knowledgeable about the subject matter they teach. We believe that a safe, inviting and caring school promotes a sense of community and encourages learning. As a result of that belief, both students and teachers engage in positive risk-taking, develop strong relationships, and build an exciting school atmosphere.
