At LHA, we believe that educational process and product are inextricably linked. While we hold all students to rigorous academic standards, we are more focused on the process by which they meet them. We prioritize how students organize their thinking, represent and articulate their thinking, and take risks, and we value effort and hard work. We create space for students to argue and defend their work and value mistakes as a learning tool to dig deeper into misconceptions. We strengthen our learning process with intentional planning, open-ended questions, and, where possible, rubric-based grading to create critical thinkers with meaningful understanding of the information they learn.
