Our Independent Day School is thriving! The classrooms are full of students working collaboratively, building character, forming friendships, growing spiritually, and developing self-confidence and competency among their peers, in their communities, and across cultures.
How have we grown? Over the past 6 years, we have experienced a 20% increase in enrollment. Today, our enrollment stands at over 95 students. Several families from outside the state and country, who had job opportunities in this region, expressed the importance of our school in their decision to relocate to Akron. They recognize that at Lippman their children will have the opportunity to reach their academic potential at the same time that they are able to develop their own unique voice. Other families who have long lived in Akron and previously sent their children to other private or public schools in town have recently “discovered” Lippman and found the unique independent school and educational model that they desire for their children. From word-of-mouth referrals shared by our current families to the many featured articles and press that have highlighted our school’s innovative programming, it is not an overstatement to say we are the “talk of the town!"
Through the support and hard work of so many, we have been able to maintain a focus on each individual child’s educational journey, hire and retain excellent teachers, and build a successful, dynamic educational model that has drawn both local and national interest. We have educational programming and partnerships in our community (e.g. with the Metro Parks, the Akron Public Schools, and Kent State), across the country in Montana, and overseas in Israel. We have expanded or multicultural model to include a sister school partnership with The Dali Experimental Primary School in Guang Dong Province of China. Lippman has, also, expanded the performing arts program to include a collaboration with local professional dancer, Brian Murphy and The Creative Works Project, an ongoing effort to bring professional artists and students together to perform original works for the community.
Whether you are a prospective family, or an old friend, we welcome your visit to our dynamic school!
