Introduction to LHCS


Lake Harriet staff and parents are committed to academic rigor for our children. We are also committed to their education in the arts, physical health, social skills development and community service. We believe in educating the whole child, respecting each child’s unique learning style and challenging each child to reach their fullest potential. We believe all children can learn and become smarter through sustained effort on their part, and sustained effort and excellence in instruction by our staff. Our teachers participate weekly in professional development and we offer extra academic support after school for students needing support in their learning.

Lake Harriet Community School is proud of our students’ high scores on the Minnesota Comprehensive Achievement state tests. Our kindergarten through eighth grade focus is on preparing our students to be knowledgeable, self-directed, life-long learners who appreciate a diverse society and are prepared for a rapidly changing technical world.

Our role as administrators is to be an advocate for the children, an academic leader for the teachers, and an effective communicator with parents and the community. It is important for us to provide staff the support and resources needed to help them help their students reach their full potential.
