Laker HS is a bronze-medal recipient!

U.S. News and World Report has named Laker High as a bronze medal school. Only 20 percent of schools across the nation were deemed as bronze schools - this is a great honor. It's based on the fact that Laker students performed better than the state average on the 2012-13 Michigan Merit Exam reading and math assessments. The performance of economically disadvantaged students was factored in, as well. Kudos to our hard working, dedicated staff and students for this honor. For more information, visit this website.


Laker Elementary - an Academic State Champ!

Laker Elementary ranks in the Top 5 percent statewide, according to Bridge Magazine (a publication by The Center for Michigan). The school is number 25 out of 653 elementary schools. The ranking is based on state test scores from 2011-13 and on free/reduced lunch figures. In addition, Lakers (as a district) ranks in the top 22 percent statewide (number 112 out of 507 districts).

Under the tab "Our Schools," you'll find the pages for our elementary, junior high and high schools. There, you'll find much more information on activities and happenings around the district. This main page is  just the beginning! Thank you for visiting our website.

Three Laker seniors receive Hueschen Scholarship!

Three Laker seniors are the recipients this year of the Gordon W. and Loyse B. Hueschen Science Scholarship. They are Kaitlyn Reinhardt, daughter of Jason and Patti Reinhardt of Pigeon; Cody Voelker, son of Eric and Pauline Voelker of Pigeon; and Kalyn Wurst, daughter of Chris and Shelly Wurst of Bay Port. This prestigious scholarship - only available to Laker High students - provides up to four years of full tuition, fees, room and board to MSU. Students need to be entering a qualifying science program at MSU and need to meet certain academic standards in order to be considered for the scholarship. Congrats to all  of these families!

Laker Secondary School receives wellness award

Laker Secondary School has received a Michigan School Wellness Bronze Award for the work it does to promote student wellness every day, including services offered through the Laker Wellness Clinic.
A special ceremony for winning schools took place May 13 at the Michigan State Capitol building, where Lakers received a plaque and a certificate. We are so appreciative of Scheurer Hospital for partnering with us in offering many of the wellness services students receive.

In addition, Laker Secondary School and the Laker Wellness Center are featured on the  Michigan Healthy School Success Story website. Click on the "more" link below to view the article.
