La Follette High School

At La Follette High, we believe that students learn best when they read challenging texts and share their ideas with each other through discussions and writing. When students respect each other’s ideas, they feel a deep sense of belonging. When they see how their work connects to the real world, they feel a deep sense of purpose. Lancer staff work hard together to learn from each other the best ways to engage all students in this challenging and meaningful work. Our goal for all of our students is to support their growth in literacy, math, and a well-rounded education.

What Makes La Follette Unique

We learn by doing the work together

  • La Follette is one of a small number of schools in the state using the block system. Each class is an hour and a half, with four classes per day. Most classes are completed in one semester. A new set of four classes begins each semester for a total of eight classes per year per student.
  • The only high school currently offering Dual-Language Immersion continued programming.
  • Only high school to offer American Sign Language as a foreign language.

Interested in adopting a school?

Through the Foundation’s Adopt-a-School program, Madison’s public schools are “adopted” by a local business, organization, or government agency, forming mutually enriching partnerships.

“La Follette has spent a lot of time structuring their school day to benefit students. My junior feels confident in her skills because she can finish her work or know she needs extra help before she leaves a classroom. This positive approach to learning is a real bonus for our family!”
