Following research on the success of The Ron Clark Academy and the chance for some teachers to visit the Academy, the LES Leadership Team cultivated the beginning of the LES version of the House system. LES Houses represent LES as a united family. Each house name relates to an attribute of the LES vision. The names were generated from the Swahili Language. These names represent STEM Literacy Skills. For example, Muumba means creator.
Lincoln, Alabama is a rural community and our students come from a variety of home environments. Each student and teacher is part of House with various grade-level students and teachers. They may earn points and recognition for special occassions. The concept of the house system provides students a sense of belonging and accountability. Community service projects are current and future endeavors of the house system.
