Every December, the LMS board of directors sets tuition rates for the upcoming school year. In recent years, we have kept, and continue to keep, tuition adjustments lower than inflation or in line with inflation, while also ensuring a strong educational program and robust compensation package for our teachers and staff.

Before And After School

The Before and After School Program (BASP) at LMS offers toddlers through middle school students a place to play, be with friends, and learn. Parents’ extended care needs are met while their children experience a familiar environment. Students enrolled in BASP can be dropped off as early as 7:45am, and picked up as late as 5:30pm. Before And After School hours are available at an extra cost.
