Dear Lancer Families, 

At La Follette High School, we believe that each student can learn and grow, literacy is power, relationships and social-emotional learning matter, adult actions make a difference, and partnering with families is essential. Together we will disrupt inequities, through purposeful collaboration on culturally and linguistically responsive instructional practices. As we celebrate and value cultural diversity, each student will take pride, feel a sense of belonging, and have high academic achievement, and our class makeup and behavior data will be proportional to our student body.
