The Laker Way

Pride – Respect – Responsibility

What is the Laker Way?

A set of beliefs in how we carry ourselves and interact with others as members of Prior Lake High School. It is through having common beliefs and understandings that we make our school “A Positive Place to Learn”. Schools/organizations that have stated common held beliefs are more successful in achieving their goals and having that positive vibe that people want to be a part of.

The Laker Way is Rooted in Three Main Beliefs; Pride, Respect and Responsibility

Pride n. 1. Pleasure or satisfaction taken in one’s work, achievements, or association; The Laker Way. 2. A sense of one’s own proper dignity, value and self-respect.

Respect v. 1. To feel or show esteem for; to honor. 2. Willingness to show consideration or appreciation.

Responsibility n. 1. Capable of making moral or rational decisions on one’s own, and therefore answerable for one’s behavior. 2. Based upon or characterized by good judgement or sound thinking.

Our Goal: A focus on these core beliefs will help create, maintain and enhance a positive culture of success at Prior Lake High School.
