Our mission is what I love about LFPS! It exemplifies the diversity in our school. We accept so many different types of students who fit within our mission statement. We strive to help each child reach his or her potential. Many times, students are capable of much more than they think or what others think. It’s amazing how students can thrive in the right environment. We love being part of their success story.

LFPS administers the Educational Development Series (EDSeries) standardized testing for achievement testing at the elementary and middle school levels. We use the most current version available with the newest norms and most updated information when comparing our Orlando private school students to other students at the same age and grade level across the nation, not just in the state of Florida.
We do not put pressure on the students or staff to prepare for this test. The staff is provided with the carefully selected curriculum and any materials necessary to implement the curriculum. Research shows that if the curriculum is taught with integrity by effective teachers, the students will perform to their highest potential.
Achievement testing does not have to be high pressure if everything else is RIGHT.
Individual student test results are reviewed and discussed at parent-teacher conferences at the end of the school year.
