Lakehill Preparatory School is an extraordinary school, guiding your children toward success. Have you heard of the expression, “small, but mighty?” That is exactly the type of school Lakehill is–a smaller community with strong academics that gives students the opportunity to be involved in extracurricular activities and develop leadership skills.
This small-knit community is like a family where everybody knows your name. You will see your child grow at this school, with faculty and staff by his side. How sweet is it for your child’s kindergarten teacher to be at their graduation, not only because they still work there, but also because they believed in your child’s future.
The student-to-teacher ratio is 10:1, with about 14 students in a class. This gives teachers and students an opportunity to engage in a variety of activities and project-based learning in the classroom. All grades (K-12th), are together on the main campus. During the school year, all students meet with their tribes – a group of students of various grade levels – six times a year. These students remain together throughout their entire educational experience at Lakehill. They make spirit posters for special events, work on community service projects and attend special events together, another way of bringing the Lakehill family together.
The main campus at Lakehill just got a face-lift with a 16,000 square foot expansion project–which added new labs, classrooms, meeting rooms and a courtyard that provides an outdoor classroom and performance space.
The courtyard is not the only place where students can learn outdoors. The Roger L. Perry campus includes the Warrior Athletic Complex and the Alice and Erle Nye Family Environmental Science Center, where K-8th go six times a year to explore nature and enjoy hands-on activities. It’s the only environmental center of its kind at a Dallas private school.
There are fun activities throughout the school year that will allow parents to become involved with the school and get to know one another. It is such a fun time at the beginning of the school year to see all the familiar faces, with some new ones that already look like they feel at home at Lakehill.
Lakehill has such a positive environment, allowing students to feel safe. The school prides itself on faculty and staff knowing all students as individuals. Some might say bigger is better, but not in this case. Lakehill has made a name for itself, showing a smaller school can give students and their families big opportunities for their education.
