Welcome Letter from Carol Patton, Principal
Welcome to our website. As you browse the outstanding work our teachers and students do throughout the school year. Please take a moment to look at all the opportunities available for your student in the academic areas, athletics and activities offered on our campus.
La Center High School is a dynamic educational institution where the staff is motivated to create lessons that inspire learning. Teachers are focused on student to student interactions, in-depth discussions and questions that raise the cognitive demand and a strong learning trust that is established with our student body.
Each student entering our school chooses a ‘Pathway’ that helps them determine their personal goals for post high school. One of our goals is to prepare all students for their future whether it is attending college, trade school, military and/or other forms of work. We help build confidence, responsibility and ownership in each individual.
We invite you to come and see the art displayed throughout the school building. We have beautiful art displays, paintings, sculptures and exhibits which are displayed in the halls, library, commons area, student lounge and stairwells. Students enjoy and respect the various pieces of art as it is part of our living space.
I hope you will become involved with our school through the volunteer program. Please contact our front office to find out how you can help continue supporting our young people.
