“The landscape of education is really changing right now. When I think about all the opportunities that schools are considering in terms of global citizenship, diversity, character education, leadership development, critical thinking, creativity, innovation; there is a laundry list of choices that schools have to figure out. How are they going to prioritize? …Two priorities really come to mind for me in terms of Lakefield—community and the development of the whole child.” —ANNE-MARIE KEE, LCS Head of School and Foundation
