South Lake’s commitment to academic excellence is cornerstone to our district. Through demonstrated merit and superior academic results, our students are driven to succeed.
At South Lake, students benefit from personalized, supportive relationships. Small class sizes allow teachers to become engaged with each student and present the material on a personal level.
Our experienced teachers lead dynamic classes that are responsive to the individualized needs of each student. Teachers employ multiple teaching styles to ensure a comprehensive understanding of the material.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
South Lake Schools' vision is to create a school district, characterized by the quality of our staff, committed to working together with the community in a positive environment to prepare all learners for the future.
South Lake Schools is committed to being a leader of excellence.
All decision making must be based on what is best for children academically, socially, physically, and emotionally.
South Lake Schools is a community of learners and all members of the community have a right to succeed.
High expectations lead to high achievement. Attitude is more important than ability.
All members of the South Lake community are mutually accountable.
The diversity of our learning community is valued as a positive reflection of global society.
Teaching how to access information and how to examine information critically is more important than teaching specific factual knowledge.
The South Lake School District continually strives to enrich our school system by achieving goals that positively affect students, parents, faculty, and the overall South Lake community.
