WE are Future Ready

At Lakota Local Schools, everything WE do is designed to provide a future-ready, student-centered learning experience for every single child.

Lakota’s ‘Portrait of a Graduate’ outlines the skills that every Lakota graduate should master, guiding the student learning experience from kindergarten through high school to prepare them to pursue one of the 4Es: Employment, Enrollment, Enlistment and Entrepreneurship.
Lakota offers a wide range of real world learning experiences to help students prepare for their future.
By applying real world learning to its daily teaching practices across all grade levels, students are able to explore their passions and gain important skills. Project-based learning activities, expanded course options & flexibility, and a variety of extracurricular choices are just a few of the many ways Lakota helps its students be 'future-ready.' Unique opportunities at Lakota include:

Cyber Academy: a first of its kind program that has been designed alongside our industry partners to develop a local pool of talent in the lucrative field of cyber security. It provides students the resources and training necessary to enter the field of cyber security.

INCubatoredu@Lakota: a new "Shark Tank" style course aimed at budding entrepreneurs where students ideate, develop, and iterate their own product or service startup in an attempt to gain investment funds in a final pitch event.
