Through our daily commitment to honoring the SPS Community Code, we strive to be kind, compassionate, and inclusive. We are respectful of, and honest with ourselves, our work, and others. We are all encouraged to be our best selves. LS students actively participate in Social Emotional Learning, practicing skills for mindfulness, managing emotions, and conflict resolution.
Language Arts and mathematics are taught by homeroom teachers daily. Students mix with grade-level peers for science and social studies three times per week and engage in French, art, music, library, sports, and performing arts classes all year long.
Exploration of the studio, musical and theatrical arts provide students rich opportunities to embrace creativity and self-expression, while gaining a long-lasting appreciation for the arts.
By deepening community partnerships and connections, and exposing our students to engaging and uniquely Philadelphia-specific experiences, our City Curriculum enhances the learning experience for each student and provide an opportunity to build a stronger bond to their communities and the city at large.
