LU begins new school year with pride and excitement | THE DAILY HERALD

CAY HILL–Learning Unlimited (LU) Preparatory School began the 2018-2019 academic year with a renewed sense of pride, vigour, and excitement, the school said in a press release on Monday.

“We continue to focus on character education initiatives, college-ready skills, the use of data-to-drive instruction and to provide a consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner so that we can continue to increase the achievement of all students,” LU Principal Daunesh Alcott said.
LU incorporated a number of new courses and extracurricular opportunities for its middle- and high-school students this year, to further enhance the school environment. New to LU this year are several Advanced Placement (AP) courses, including AP Calculus A/B, AP US Government and Politics, AP Computer Science Principles, AP Statistics and AP Mandarin, in addition to the many other AP course offerings already in its system.
Additionally, the LU Scuba Club, the Around the Island Relay Race teams, the Model United Nations and the Debate Club are back. The school canteen was delayed by Hurricane Irma, but officially opened on Monday, September 3, with a full breakfast, lunch, and snack menu to serve every student.
Also, this year LU has expanded its Toddler Academy facility to accommodate the numerous requests received from parents.
“In line with the educational programme offered here at LU, we aim to provide a fun and safe learning environment that would foster the development of the toddlers in our Toddler Academy. Our goal is to enrich the lives of our students through learning and play. We are staffed with caring professionals who take a personal interest in the growth and development of each student,” Alcott said.
“For this upcoming 2018-2019 school year, we will continue to build on LU’s successful tradition of striving to improve in all areas. We again have moved forward with our strategic planning to expand our programmes and curriculum offerings. We are happy to see all of the returning members of the LU family, and welcome the new members that are joining us as students, parents and staff.
“We look forward to what we hope will be the best year ever at Learning Unlimited Preparatory School. With administration, staff, parents and students working together, we can assure success in all of our goals and objectives, all the while keeping Learning Unlimited Preparatory School the only premier US Accredited educational experience in the Caribbean.”
