#LovelandLearning at LHS
Posted Thursday, February 25, 2016
In this special series, we talked academics with each building principal to really understand what #LovelandLearning is all about.
Loveland City School District (LCSD): At LHS, what is your team doing really well to promote academic achievement for students?
Peggy Johnson (PJ): The opportunity I’m most excited about this school year is the addition of seven AP classes including macroeconomics, English language, calculus AB, music theory, psychology, computer science, and art history – with more to come for next year. We are currently looking to add environmental science, AP computer science principles, and physics C mechanics next year, along with AP world history and AP human geography in 2017-18. This really speaks to the push we are making academically to expand both the breadth and depth of our offerings to students, and that push has been very well received.
LCSD: What do you hope to work on?
PJ: I’m looking to expand our Response to Intervention model with targeted intervention for more students. This is a priority for the upcoming 2016-17 school year. My goal is to have teachers working with small groups of students, around two to four, to really provide individual instruction in areas where it is needed.
LCSD: What academic accomplishment are you most proud of at LHS?
PJ: I’m most proud of our exceptionally talented students, and their ability is evident in multiple aspects of learning – from arts to more traditional academics to athletics. We were all captivated by our award-winning Loveland Show Choirs first show, and that very same weekend our LHS Robotics team qualified for state. And, our athletic program is premier and continuing to expand and grow – offering near unlimited opportunities for our student-athletes. All of these things go beyond traditional textbook learning – and that is how our district pushes students from LECC up to LHS. We are doing more than passing standardized tests, we are creating an incredible academic journey district-wide.
