Student Focused, Community Connected
At Lakeville Area Schools, student success is our number one goal. So, it’s no surprise we’re often at the head of the class in academics, at the top of our game in athletics, and an all-star performer in the arts and activities. First and foremost, we’re focused on ensuring success for every child – personally, socially, academically and civically. We do this by setting great expectations for our students, while empowering them with the support and relationships they need to make the most of their individual gifts and unique potential.
We also believe in fostering a sense of community in every classroom, building and team. Our school leaders reinforce this shared commitment. We inspire passion for learning by creating a culture where teachers and staff collaborate, families are engaged and connected, and students support one another. Whether a Cougar or a Panther, everyone is a part of the pride!
That roar of pride can be heard across Lakeville Area’s civic and business communities as well. Whether helping in our classrooms, attending our events, cheering in our stands, or investing in our facilities, their active involvement, genuine support, and spirited enthusiasm helps navigate students towards individual and collective successes. Through this community lens, we will continue to focus on opportunities that raise student achievement, foster their continual growth, and prepare them for a bright future.
