Student Focused, Community Connected

  • About Lakeville Area Schools flyer

    Lakeville Area Schools (Independent School District No. 194) is an award-winning public school district located in the south metropolitan area of Minneapolis/St. Paul. The district serves more than 12,000 students in Lakeville, as well as parts of Burnsville, Elko New Market, Eureka, Credit River and New Market.

    There are eight elementary schools (K-5) with a ninth slated to open fall 2024, three middle schools (6-8), two high schools (9-12), an alternative learning center, an online K-12 school, early childhood programming, and lifelong learning opportunities through Lakeville Area Community Education. 

    At Lakeville Area Schools, student success is our number one goal. So, it’s no surprise we’re often at the head of the class in academics, at the top of our game in athletics, and an all-star performer in the arts and activities.

    Together with our families and community, Lakeville Area Schools provides educational opportunities to ensure academic, social, civic, and personal readiness for every student. We do this by setting great expectations for our students, while empowering them with the support and relationships they need to make the most of their individual gifts and unique potential.

    We also believe in fostering a sense of community in every classroom, building and team. Our school leaders reinforce this shared commitment. Our vision is to provide a safe, respectful, engaging, rigorous, and collaborative learning environment for all students, families and staff where every person belongs, is valued, and can succeed.

    That roar of pride can be heard across Lakeville Area’s civic and business communities as well. Whether helping in our classrooms, attending our events, cheering in our stands, or investing in our facilities, their active involvement, genuine support, and spirited enthusiasm helps navigate students towards individual and collective successes. Through this community lens, we will continue to focus on opportunities that raise student achievement, foster their continual growth, and prepare them for a bright future.
