Lunenburg County Independent School
Check out all the great things our students and teachers are up to!
The LCIS is thrilled to be welcoming our new and returning students for another year of inspired, joyful learning..
The staff and board are delighted to begin our third year. The school has expanded to include grades 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11. Lunenburg County Independent School is a non-profit Waldorf-inspired High School. We support our students on their way to becoming self-confident young adults with strong academic knowledge, excellent artistic skills, resilience, flexibility and an independent way of thinking
The diverse Waldorf-inspired curriculum includes the involvement of several teachers in subjects from math to handwork to gardening. This year we will have two classes: grades 7-9 and 10-11. Our grade 7-9 will have their main lessons with our lead teacher, Dijana MacMillan. These will include Chemistry, Physics, Anatomy, World Geography, Exploration, Renaissance and Revolution, Short Stories, and Poetry, and Geometry. Grade 10-11 will have main lessons with a rotation of visiting teachers, Geology with Dr. Duncan Keppie, Medieval History and Projective Geometry with Dr. Maggie Keppie, Art History with Ms. Marcelle Edwards, Economics with Mr. Jim White, and Parzival with Ms. Anne Greer with more blocks to be added as the school year progresses.
We are also offering a part-time Home School inclusion program. Please see our web site for details.
Community mentorship opportunities are invaluable to the students as they continue to learn practical skills and different views outside the classroom as well as inside. One full week in the spring is dedicated to a practicum designed around an area of interest particular to each student. Community trades people, artisans, business owners, farmers and others interested in sharing their skills with an LCIS student are encouraged to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
