LCS, a school established by students and staff to be the most engaging learning environment in Africa, where learning is hard and joyous, presents its identity and beginnings on its website as follows;
“In 1968, six American families joined together to create Lincoln Community School. Some 50 years later, Lincoln Community School is an International Baccalaureate World School offering the Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma Programs through the lens of U.S. curricular standards and is recognized as a leading international school in Africa.
“In keeping with our ethos as an American-style international school, LCS offers a rich extracurricular program that embraces appreciation for and participation in the arts, personal fitness and a healthy, well-balanced lifestyle. LCS students frequently stay beyond the regular school day to enjoy our after-school activity programs, programs that not only bring us together but make sure that we keep “community” in the middle of Lincoln School.”
