#1 for growth in English Language Arts

#2 for growth in Math.

LPA was highlighted by the St. Louis Post Dispatch for academic growth in this article, published October 2019.

We are so proud of the hard work and commitment of our students and staff. Through their efforts, we have demonstrated that all students can learn and excel to become their personal best.


LPA’s growth in English Language Arts surpassed all other districts in the region.
LPA’s growth in Math was second in the region.

LPA’s mission to be “diverse by design” is paramount to ending racial and economic inequity in the City of St. Louis. We believe one of the best ways to meet this mission is to ensure that students from different backgrounds learn together, embracing the depth and richness of understanding that can only be attained by learning with an understanding of many perspectives, ideas, and strategies to solve problems.
