I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition. ~ Martha Washington
When & Where
Lawton Chiles Preparatory School
Lawton Chiles Preparatory School for Gifted and Talented Students was founded in 1971. We strive to defend and cultivate the individuality we are all born with but too often neglect. At LCPS, we believe that students unique combination of gifts and talents help them make our world a better place. We focus on cultivating students' intellectual growth in the subjects in which they are most interested and gifted. Using project-based curricula, we challenge students to increase their individual learning pace with one-on-one academic and life skills instruction. Our unique teaching strategies transform our students into well-adapted, successful individuals.
