About Lakehill Preparatory School
Lakehill Preparatory School guides motivated students to learn with curiosity, lead with confidence, and serve with compassion. Our challenging and nurturing educational community inspires students to become collaborative problem-solvers who live with integrity. Talented teachers, high academic standards, and the development of leadership skills in a challenging and nurturing environment are hallmarks of a Lakehill education.

Lakehill Preparatory School's Opening Doors campus improvement project is on schedule and will be available for use for the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year. Construction is underway to renovate 8,000 square feet of existing space and add 16,000 square feet of new space to the original building. This vital effort will produce new lab spaces for science, writing, and computer science, an art studio, new classrooms, administrative offices, meeting and event rooms, and a dramatic 5,000 square foot inner courtyard with outdoor classroom and performance space.

Lakehill is not afraid to confront uncomfortable subjects such as racism and the Holocaust in its curriculum. The Lakehill community is lucky. Very few of have had to encounter the segregation, discrimination, and religious persecution that is discussed in the classroom. However, these are not abstracts confined to textbooks. 
 
At an assembly for students in sixth through twelfth grade, Max Glauben, a Holocaust survivor, shared his testimony about actions which we consider impossible, yet are, indeed, possible. For almost an hour, Glauben shared his experiences between the ages of 11, when the Nazis invaded his homeland, Poland, and 15, when American troops liberated  him and others during a death march to Dachau. His story provided his audience with a powerful example of the indomitable human spirit and the will to survive.

Glauben has been sharing his story with audiences for more than 30 years, representing not only himself, but also the more than one million Jewish children who perished during the Holocaust. He left his Lakehill audience with three pieces of advice: 1) to never, never, never give up; 2) to remember that your brain is the most important computer you have; and 3) to speak out against injustice and not be a bystander.

A breezy day, a kite, and a kid - a Saturday morning at its finest. This old-school pastime became a new favorite for hundreds of students from Bayles Elementary and their families during this year's annual Kite Day celebration on April 8.
 
The fields at Lakehill's Roger L. Perry Campus provided the perfect location. Volunteers handed out 500 kites and offered guidance to novice kite fliers and their families. The Lion's Club fired up the grill to serve a hot dog lunch to all who attended.
  
As the sky came alive with hundreds of colorful, dancing kites, spirits soared back on the ground.
