Matt Miller headshotWelcome to Lakota Local Schools! 

From our youngest learners to our oldest, we are committed to providing an excellent educational experience through personalized learning.

Our focus is on high academic achievement, exploration and opportunity, and individualized measures of success through careful preparation. This emphasis on outstanding instruction is evident at every grade level – with 91% of Lakota parents rating the district’s quality of education as excellent or good.

We work hard to ensure a safe and inclusive learning environment in which each child is comfortable and secure. Using modern, data-driven instruction that includes technology and other resources, our exceptional staff offer personalized support to match diverse needs.

Such programs are possible because the district runs an effective and efficient day-to-day operational budget. We are committed to strong fiscal management practices that have put our finances in a stable operational outlook for the next several years. This is important as we continue to look at leveraging educational offerings for students in a fiscally responsible manner.

Moreover, we could not offer the best possible start for our students without the support of this community. We consider our parents, business leaders and local residents as partners. From parents staying involved through our multitude of parent engagement opportunities and corporations invested in our internship programs, to volunteers helping in our schools and non-profit organizations partnering with us, these community partnerships complement the work our exceptional teachers are doing in the classroom.  

Our district is very active on social media, including Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Search for #WEareLakota to join the conversation and learn about great things that are happening in classrooms throughout the district every day.

Join Me at an Upcoming Coffee Chat 

If you’ve met me or follow me on social media, I hope you can see that one of my top priorities now and for the next several months is to get out and listen. I cannot emphasize enough the value I find in getting to know as many students, staff members, parents, residents and community and business leaders as possible. Real conversations are the only way to learn more about this community’s priorities for education.

So I hope you'll join me for one of my monthly Coffee Chats. For an hour, I will be available for drop-in conversation with parents and residents at local coffee houses (rotating between West Chester and Liberty Township locations).

No events available.
