Faculty & Staff

At LFCDS it really is all about the students.
We strive to keep learning and growing as educators,
so that we can nurture and inspire our students to be their best selves.

-- Current LFCDS Teacher
Excellent education begins with motivated, caring professionals who display a lifelong love of learning and who embrace community life. By combining experienced, caring teachers with small class sizes, we ensure that each student benefits from personal attention and steady guidance. Students view their teachers as strong role models who set high standards for personal accountability, active involvement and respect for others.
