The Middle East


The entire student body of LFS spends the better part of a month on an in depth study of one topic. Each grade spends class time focusing on the topic in a developmentally appropriate way. We also meet, share, and learn together as a school. The experience is called the "All School Theme". This year's topic is the Middle East.
