Together We Are Better!
Lawrence Heights Middle School is an exciting place to be and a great place to learn. We offer a comprehensive curriculum with a strong focus on core language arts and mathematics subjects as well as an emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), the arts including drama, dance, visual arts, instrumental music, and health/physical education. Technology is integrated throughout the teaching and learning environment.
There are many opportunities for students to become involved and engaged in the school: sports teams; intramural activities; the band and choir; the student leadership team, drama or dance clubs, boys/girls clubs, junior chefs club, etc. There is something for everyone!
Lawrence Heights has a variety of programs to support students with special needs. We have two full day Intensive Support Programs which include additional staff such as Child and Youth Workers, an Educational Assistant, and a Special Needs Assistant, as well as classroom teachers, and very small class sizes. We also have two half-day special education programs for students requiring additional support in language arts and mathematics. These classes also have smaller class sizes and are supported by an Educational Assistant and the classroom teacher. In addition, students with Individual Education Plans placed in a regular classroom are supported by Special Education Resource Teachers for several periods in a 10 day cycle.
