Welcome to Lakota Public School

"Our mission is to enable all students to achieve their individual potential in academic excellence and social responsibility"


Lakota Public School Vision

The staff of Lakota Public Schools, in shared governance with students, parents, and community members, believe that all students can and will learn.

We are committed to providing a safe, orderly and equitable environment to support student learning.  As reflective educators, we practice data-driven instruction of standards-based curriculum.  Lakota graduates students who have successfully mastered the following school-wide learner outcomes:

  • Students will acquire a standards-based core of knowledge.
  • Students will demonstrate problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
  • Students will demonstrate effective communication skills in areas of reading, writing, listening and speaking.
  • Students will be technologically capable and resourceful.
  • Students will become responsible and contributing citizens of a pluralistic society.

This vision statement is intended to serve as both the blueprint for improvement and the benchmark by which will evaluate progress.

School Wellness Information

The Lakota School District is currently working on our Wellness Policy and plan for the rest of this school year.  Wellness is an effort to promote healthy eating, promoting a healthy lifestyle and incorporating exercise and fitness into the daily routine of our school district.  We currently have a Wellness Committee team of nine individuals which include administrators, staff from both the elementary and high school, and three parents.  If you are interested in helping or being a part of the Wellness Committee, please call Supt. Harder at the high school, 701-247-2992.
