LMS students will demonstrate a growth mindset that seeks to improve, explore, and share in self and community improvement through Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. This includes an upper secondary readiness for the courses and extracurriculars of local high schools, including, but not limited to, DELTA, Hanford, Richland, Rivers Edge, and Health Sciences Academy. LMS students will produce innovative and researched projects, presentations, or performances that demonstrate a thorough understanding and ability to communicate content, evidence, and arguments as a group or as an individual. Finally, LMS students will be thoughtful in their involvement and service to the community that involves heart, mind, and character through their talent, skills, and communication developed at LMS.
