School Overview

Lake Country School (LCS) is a compassionate and joyful community of children, adolescents, families, and faculty and staff that learn and grow together year after year. An independent school with a 45+ year history that is a nationally recognized leader in Montessori education, LCS is guided by its mission and its core values of Montessori pedagogy, peace education, stewardship, and love of work. LCS supports its faculty and staff with competitive salaries and benefits, strong adherence to AMI standards, beautiful, simple, and rich learning environments with a full complement of materials, and a commitment to professional development.

LCS is truly one of a kind with its urban and rural campuses. Its urban campus is nestled into the vibrant Kingfield Neighborhood in South Minneapolis: a mile from the chain of lakes and a few miles from downtown Minneapolis with access to the high quality parks, museums, universities/colleges, and businesses of the Twin Cities. Its rural campus is a 160 acre farm property 75 miles away in western Wisconsin that provides an incredible environment for deep, rich, and meaningful learning opportunities on the land during day trips and overnights.
