INTRODUCING LAM

LAM is a nonprofit, self-supporting Christian school serving families in the Coeur d’Alene area since 1996. LAM provides a premier academic education to students from preschool through fifth grade in a nurturing Christian environment. Our goal is to mold faithful leaders who are humble servants.

 

Thanks to a dedicated staff, committed parents, and exceptional students, LAM can focus on a rigorous curriculum. LAM recognizes the future of education and is fulfilling those needs by transitioning to Singapore math and a state-of-art science curriculum. This is part of our commitment to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). LAM provides a low student to staff ratio in the major disciplines of language arts, mathematics, science, history, and Bible education.

 

Spanish or Latin are part of the curriculum for all grades. A special emphasis is placed on the fine arts of music, drama, and art. Students excel in public speaking and participate in a wide range of performances throughout the school year. A before and after school program, summer camps, and Monday extra-curricular classes are available.

 

LAM has developed an approach of our own to education. We set our expectations higher than district and state standards which have resulted in students with a deeper understanding of subjects and higher test scores*. LAM students consistently advance to the district/regional/state levels in speech meets, spelling bees, and Lego League Robotic competitions.

 

LAM's Mission Statement:

To provide a premier academic education to all students in a nurturing Christian environment and to share Christ's love with their families.
