Dear Lancer Families, 

Welcome to La Follette High School. Every year we grow a lot over the summer, bring in new teachers and leaders, and improve together. I am very excited to meet our new students and families who will learn and grow with us over the next year together. We have a tradition of grit and resilience at LHS that helps us focus on opportunities and to strive towards success. We believe in ourselves, and we never give up.
