Lakota East is always on top of topics like bullying, personal, safety, security measures, the nurse, etc. Three times a year, the students undergo A.L.I.C.E. training where students learn how to handle an active shooter. The staff are all friendly and approachable about any bullying that may occur. Our school nurse is well equipped and knowledgeable. The cafeteria is frequently cleaned and the food is far above "cafeteria food". The janitorial staff really does an amazing job keeping the school clean and cleaning up messes the instant they occur. The school is very safe. During school hours, anyone entering the building must come through the office and is "buzzed in" through two separate doors by a secretary. Before and after school hours (when students are arriving/leaving), the principal herself along with multiple other staff are greeting students as they walk in and keeping an alert for potential safety issues. Lakota East has its own police officer who is there daily. Deputy Doug has extensive training and the students take him and the staff very seriously.
There is an extracurricular at Lakota East for every kind of person. We have sports, we have arts, we have chess, robotics, the Gay-Straight Alliance, language clubs, academic clubs, and MANY more. I personally was in the Honor Society, Spanish Club, and Gay-Straight Alliance. The meetings were right after school and usually didn't interfere with each other. The fees were low, around ten dollars a club, and students had the option of purchasing things like t-shirts to raise money for their club. Teachers and staff were also heavily involved in clubs. Students also could start their own clubs, after getting it approved by the principal of course. Our student body is extremely diverse and there are a vast amount of clubs and extracurriculars offered.
Being involved in the choir, I had my own niche within my high school. I was sad to graduate, but I am also ready to move on to college life and being getting as involved as I can! Lakota East High School was a wonderful academic environment, as well as social environment. It was easy to make friends, as everyone was friendly, and my teachers (and even members of the staff that I didn't have for class) were extremely helpful! I never felt a need to compete amongst my classmates, and I never felt like teachers favored any students over another. All in all, I enjoyed my time at Lakota East High School and I am proud to call myself and alumni.
