We believe that exposure to new places and ideas is an essential part of a good education, so community partnerships are not only a natural fit, they are essential to our school.
Each partnership allows our students to make connections with people who are not direct employees of the school. These connections allow Lyons’ students to see more possibilities for their futures and gain beneficial experiences and skills. These relationships also help our staff have a healthy and regular exchange of ideas with other people interested in the well being of our students. Their interests and passions spark our own.
