Culturally Diverse:

With 38% of students celebrating their multicultural backgrounds, Lakota provides a culturally-diverse experience where respect and inclusion are taught as core values.

Fiscally Responsible:

Fewer than 5% of all entities that are audited annually earn the "Auditor of State Award with Distinction" - and Lakota has received the honor eight years in a row. 

1:1 Technology:

Through Lakota's WE are Empowered initiative, 100 percent of all students in grades 3-12 have access to their own Chromebook for daily learning.

Dogs of Lakota:

Lakota's pack of nine therapy dogs, and growing, are wagging their tails around the district, providing therapy and emotional support to even our youngest learners. 

The 4Es:

We believe in preparing every student for success after graduation in one of the 4Es: Enrollment in higher education; Enlistment in military service; Employment as a contributing member of our community; or Entrepreneurship.
