We are dedicated to providing a high quality education for our youth.  With that commitment, we strive for excellence and opportunity for each student in every offering and activity of the school district.

Serving nearly 1200 students, K-12, in two elementary schools (K-4), a middle school (5-8), and a high school (9-12), we strive to offer educational opportunities using a healthy balance between one-to-one technology, hands-on skills, enrichment, and remediation.

We are proud to be the Lakers!  We hope you consider applying to be part of our team!  

Humphrey & Winsted Elementary
With two elementary schools to serve our three communities, we set out to establish a solid foundation of core academic instruction.   Keeping class sizes low and supplementing with many support staff including many paraprofessionals, a social worker and a full-time counselor, both Humphrey and Winsted Elementary have created a positive, enriching experience for all our students and families.

Much of what we do as elementary schools is established through strong connections made between staff and students.  Our staff members really get to know each and every child, and through the use of Love and Logic, we make sure that there are adults who look out for the needs of everyone.

Our schools were remodeled and additions were made to both facilities in 2007.  Our student population at both schools continues to grow not only in numbers, but in excitement about all the possibilities our schools make into a reality.

Winners of the United States Department of Education’s National Blue Ribbon (Humphrey 2012 & Winsted 2013), our elementary schools are top notch!
