Bring the Mission to Life

Increase Access

A fundamental goal of the project is to increase access to the LWHS education in two ways―by offering enrollment to more students and supporting the school’s unwavering commitment to Flexible Tuition. The new building will accommodate 550 students, i.e. approximately 15 additional students in each grade level. This intentional increase in enrollment means the LWHS mission can serve a greater number of qualified students.

Teaching & Learning Spaces

The renovated classroom building will effectively deliver the school’s strategic priority of sustaining a vibrant learning community and creating spaces that support LWHS’ habits of mind pedagogy.

Community Engagement

The new space for the Center for Civic Engagement will be one way in which the school deepens its commitment to being a private school with public purpose. In combination with the new Public Purpose Program, which asks students to learn beyond the LWHS campus by volunteering in the community, the school invites its neighbors to be an integral part of LWHS through a shared community meeting room, which will be used by the school, as well as neighborhood organizations.

The new community room will provide the neighborhood with greater access to a meeting space that will complement the Center’s ever expanding partnerships that have evolved over the past 25 years.
