    Since 1970 Learning Prep School has earned a reputation for providing an educational program and a safe and supportive learning environment for students with language processing and attendant learning challenges as their primary disability. Complex learning profiles of our students may include dyslexia, expressive/receptive language issues, autism spectrum disorder, anxiety, limited social pragmatics and executive functioning challenges.

    In the spring of 1982, our campus greenhouse was constructed and the horticulture program soon became one of the signature programs at Learning Prep School. During the summer of 2018, as a result of a generous grant from Price Waterhouse Foundation, an extensive renovation of the greenhouse facility was completed in time for opening of the 2018-2019 School Year. Horticultural students have been working with staff members in the greenhouse and surrounding gardens planting flowers, herbs, vegetables, and houseplants, as well as learning essential information attendant with operating a business.

    On Friday, May 10th at 2:00 pm we will be celebrating the reopening of the facility and the program. There will be light refreshments for our guests, music, and will be an excellent opportunity to select a Mother’s Day Gift. The greenhouse will also be open on Saturday, May 11th from 8:00am-1:00pm, providing everyone with an opportunity to view the facility, learn about the program, and to purchase plants for Mom and anyone who enjoys gardening.

    For those looking to preview the sale, a pre-order form will be sent out soon- keep your eyes peeled!

    On Thursday, January 31, Learning Prep School hosted a very well attended event to support Partners In Education (PIE). Food Service Director, Lindsay and her team prepared a wonderful meatball dinner and desserts for everyone, followed by a fun night of bingo called by High School Principal, Jennifer Thorell.

    Students and parents presented their winning bingo cards and they were able to select gift cards for i-tunes, Starbucks or Five Below. We concluded the evening with our LPS Gift Basket Raffle. For the night we raised over $300 thanks to the abundance of family members in attendance that will directly support PIE. The aim of PIE is to promote and enhance the character, culture, and values of the educational program offered at LPS, and to forge a unified, vibrant, caring community of support for Learning Prep School.

    Thank you to everyone who attended or helped out at this event and we hope to see you at the next LPS Family Night!

    On the week of January 21st, the Elementary and Middle School GSA sponsored “No Name Calling Week”! No Name-Calling Week is a week organized by K-12 educators and students to end name-calling and bullying in schools. Students celebrated the week by taking the “No Name Calling” pledge in Health and Student Issues classes. They also discussed empathy, kindness, and being an “up-stander” in both Health and Performing Arts classes. Daily "Kindness Challenges" for students to participate in, as well. No Name Calling Week was a great success and students enjoyed the week dedicated to promoting a safe school environment for all!
