Our Curriculum 


Our curriculum is unified by essential questions relating to the theme of community.

We believe such contemplation helps develop perspective on life, and we want students to experience the power of engaging matters of real consequence. The culture of Lyons Community School expresses the symbiosis between youth development and community, both in and out of the classroom. Lively exchange of questions and ideas is constant throughout the day. Lyons Community School instructors apply "shared inquiry" and "accountable talk" methods to make social learning purposeful, to prompt students to share their curiosity, and to encourage leadership in the classroom. Important conversations also occur in town meetings when advisories debate the merits of a proposal to arrive at consensus.
