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). For more information, click on this link: State Academic Champs

Make sure to visit individual school pages for info...

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.

Lakers hires Brian Keim as new superintendent

After interviewing four candidates for the superintendent position, the Laker Board of Education decided to hire Brian Keim as the superintendent. He will begin in this new role as soon as a contract is completed. He will remain in the principal role until a new principal is hired (the principal position was posted Aug. 19). Current Superintendent Bob Smith will stay on in an advisory role to help ensure a smooth transition. 

"The board had a difficult decision to make, but I believe they made a terrific choice," Smith said. "Brian has great vision, great character and will be a great leader for our district."

"I'm extremely honored to be chosen for this position," Keim said. "I grew up here and my children all attend Lakers, so I have a lot of passion for this school and community.  This district has been an educational leader in the area for many years and has a great deal of pride and tradition.  I am inheriting a healthy district with a great teaching staff, student body, school board, and administrative team, so our challenge will be to maintain many of our current programs and practices while envisioning new ways to keep Lakers on the cutting edge.  We want to find even more ways to support and challenge our students so they are prepared for a rapidly changing world.  We want to be the best academic institution around, but we also want to go above and beyond traditional academics to equip students with interpersonal skills, strong character, and college and career experiences before they leave our school doors.  If we can do these things, we not only strengthen our students, but also the future of our local community and economy.  I'm excited by these challenges and look forward to getting started."
