Principal's Message

Dear Students and Parents/Guardians,

Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about our Lawton Chiles Academy community. We are so excited for the 2019-20 school year! Our staff is working hard to prepare engaging and rewarding learning experiences for all students.

If you are new to Lawton Chiles Middle Academy, welcome! It is our belief that while at our school, every student has the ability to reach a high level of success and we are truly excited to see where your time at LCMA will take you. During your time at Lawton Chiles Middle Academy, you can expect to not only grow in your academic knowledge, but also develop skills for communication, intercultural understanding, and global engagement, which are essential for life in the 21st century.

LCMA is an International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme School which offers students opportunities to develop their potential, explore their own learning preferences, take appropriate risks, and reflect on and develop a strong sense of personal identity. We want every student who has the privilege to call themselves an LCMA Knight, to head to High School knowing they have the skills necessary to become an advocate for themselves and take an active role in their academic pursuits. We take great pride in the fact that we are able to equip our students with the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve their goals, no matter what their dreams may be.

For those who are already a part of our LCMA family, we are excited to have you back for another year! We cannot wait to see what the year holds for you as you continue on your journey towards reaching star status this year.

Remember, our teachers set the stage, but it is up to you to become the star!

Mrs. Kendrick, Principal
