Dr. Kurt Steinhaus and kids at Mountain Elementary

Greetings from the Superintendent’s Desk!

Our vision at LAPS is to prepare capable and confident life-long learners. The big question is, how do we do this? To prepare our children to thrive in the 21st century workplace, we must go beyond the standard education expectations of the classroom. In the article, Don’t Be a Robot! Manage Your Classroom with the Four Cs, author Cindy Hoisington talks about rethinking “not only what we teach but how we teach it.” Not only is it important to teach the ABCs but to teach with the four Cs in mind – critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity.

Our curriculum incorporates these ideals while embracing our goal that every child will discover and develop their unique strengths and thrive at the next level. What we teach our children and how we teach our children will prepare them to take their place in the “real world”.

Dr. Kurt Steinhaus
