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.
