Welcome to Lakeville Area Schools
Our district is dedicated to preparing students for post-high school success and is viewed as one of the best school districts in Minnesota. Our Board of Education’s vision is to inspire a passion for learning in every student.
The Lakeville Area community knows the value of a Lakeville Area Schools education. Our community members have experienced our first-rate schools and the opportunities that prepare our students to be successful after graduation.
Our district’s vision drives our goals and supporting strategies throughout our organization. We monitor key performance indicators to share progress in five key areas of our strategic plan: student achievement, community connectedness, fiscal responsibility, high-quality workforce and safety and security.
I invite you to contact us with questions about our district and our schools.
Thank you for choosing Lakeville Area Schools.

The district serves approximately 11,000 students in Dakota and Scott counties, and covers 86 square miles, including most of Lakeville, parts of Burnsville and Elko New Market, and portions of Eureka, Credit River and New Market townships.
There are eight elementary schools (K-5), three middle schools (6-8) and two high schools (9-12), LinK12-Lakeville (an online school), plus an Area Learning Center, and two Community Education facilities, which serve early childhood through adult education.
Lakeville Area Schools consistently earns high levels of proficiency in Reading and Mathematics accountability testing. Student performance outpaces the state averages and is competitive with other high-achieving metropolitan districts.
While we are very proud of these achievement levels, we recognize and embrace the fact that there continues to be room for growth. We continue to focus on raising achievement of all students.
