On November 1, more than 125 school and community members came together to review the most important document in PLSAS: our Strategic Plan that defines our mission, core values, vision and strategic directions. It was an interactive evening with students, parents, staff and community working in groups to describe the experiences they would like to have in our schools in the coming years. These descriptions will help guide the district in the next stage of planning.
Prior Lake High School
Prior Lake High School was named one of the best high schools in America by Newsweek Magazine based on its quality teaching staff along with its Advanced-Placement and college-level course offerings.
The Washington Post named PLHS one of America's Most Challenging High Schools in the nation, placing the school in the top 10 percent of U.S. high schools. Additionally, approximately 95% of students attend two- or four-year colleges/universities.
Technology is integrated into the curriculum, including online and hybrid course electives, and SMART Board technology. Students also choose from a full range of English, science, math, social studies, PhyEd/Health, fine arts and world language offerings.
PLHS is committed to the E-STEM initiative through programs such as Project Lead the Way, EcoTeam, robotics and through our small-scale Fabrication Labratory, or Fab Lab. In the Fab Lab, students can make almost anything from decals to phone cases. PLHS is proud to be part of a 2013 U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools Sustainability District that supports Environmental Education.
