Middle/High School Profile
With approximately 409 middle and high school students, LPMHS is a small public school with an abundance of opportunities. Eight Advanced Placement courses highlight a rigorous college preparatory curriculum, and programs in visual arts, music, and performing arts continue to thrive. Small class sizes allow for close and productive relationships between students and teachers. Eighty-five percent of graduates move on to postsecondary education. Most students participate in athletic programs, honor societies, and community service clubs. A new senior project provides a capstone experience for graduating seniors.
PBIS Update (Positive Behavioral Intervention Support)
The PBIS Middle High School Building Team has been meeting regularly during the summer to complete our big plans for our PBIS September "Kick-off" in the Middle High School building this September. The team has completed the PBIS Behavior Matrix of Expectations "Be Your Bomber Best" that will be posted throughout the school. The Matrix has also been added to the 2011-2012 Student Handbook, which is now available for viewing on the Middle High School webpage (under the Our School Locker" section).
Additionally, the team has developed a set of "Cool Tools" lesson plans for the faculty and staff to teach the "Be Your Bomber Best" expected behaviors to all students on the first day of school in September. If you would like to know more about PBIS and the powerful, positive impact the framework has on schools who have become PBIS schools, you can easily visit the PBIS website at pbis.org.
North Country Community College Bridge Courses Available
An NCCC Bridge course is a “dual
enrollment” course. A student is simultaneously enrolled in a high school course and in an NCCC course,
which will earn that student college credits. The student receives two grades. A student's high school transcript
will record the grade as a high school course to meet high school graduation requirements. NCCC maintains a
separate, official college transcript that records the grade and credits earned.
The fee to “bridge” one of our offered courses and earn college credit is $50.00 for the entire course (a fraction
of the usual cost for a college course!) The LP courses currently offered as NCCC Bridge courses are
Photography I, AP Environmental Biology (Lab), Multicultural Literature, Introduction to College Algebra,
Introduction to Geometry and Trig, French 5, and Spanish 5.
