Dear Lancer Families,

As we start the new semester, it is important to revisit our values and commitments, so that we build on a culture that supports learning and growth.  It is important to us that every student feels like they belong at La Follette. Similarly, we want every family to feel that our school is a safe place to learn.

To support a positive culture of learning at La Follette, we practice Lancer P.R.I.D.E.
  • Personal Responsibility - Be accountable for actions, choices, and the results
  • Respect - Show consideration, appreciation, and acceptance
  • Integrity - Be honest, sincere, and use kind words and actions
  • Determination - Set goals and meet expectations
  • Excellence - Strive to do the best at all times

Scheduling - Course Selections

Dear Lancer Families,

Students will be entering course selections from Jan 31- Feb 14 in their 2nd blocks. It is important to note that students will need to give much thought and care in their course selections, to meet their graduation requirements and post high school career plans. Course changes will only be allowed under limited, special considerations and reviewed by a panel of Counselors and Administrators. Students will be supported and encouraged to remain in their selected courses.
