Lakota West has some of the best admins in the entire district. Mr. Card truly cares about the students. The majority of the teachers share the same values as Mr. Card, while there are a few teachers who are there just for the paycheck. The counselors are Amazing. My counselor, Mr. Emig, really goes above and beyond by not only creating connections with the students, but also with the parents. Sports are Lakota are competitive and worth watching. Our school Spirit is amazing. The theater program is amazing, thanks to Ms. Eldridge. In addition, our honors, AP, and IB programs are among the best. Lastly, the Lakota district works hard to help students intern and learn from the large businesses in our area like P & G. I can't say enough about Lakota. Go Firebirds!

Long story we switched schools again this time late 7th grade year to Lakota West High School. This school helped me overcome battles of my own but for me to actually not skipping school because I was "sick". This school isn't perfect, there's a lot of things it could improve on but the school cares about its students. They provide with us internships opportunities, meetings with our guidance counselors and courses that help us prepare for our future!
I’m a current junior. I’ve loved my time at West (the main campus, that is)! I’ve met so many great friends and I have a lot of fond memories. The athletics I've been a part of have been good for the most part, and I’ve had my mix of great as well as terrible teachers. I complain about too much homework and teachers who don’t teach (like most of us) but I wouldn’t change a thing about my experience. Go Firebirds!
