Message from the Principal
Mrs. Karen Johnson, Principal
Lake Minatare School is the smallest of our district's schools. Although the history of the school dates back to 1889, the current school building was completed in 1966 and serves as the "neighborhood" school for the combined districts of Highland, Lake Alice and Lake Minatare. It is located about 5 miles east of the sugar factory, just north of Highland Road.
Lake Minatare School is a country school, set among cornfields, on dirt roads, with nothing to block the sun or the wind. It is a peaceful, quiet setting without traffic or neighborhood noise. There are 5 classrooms for kindergarten through sixth grade for our 80 students.
We offer co-ed basketball and volleyball for 3rd - 5th graders, a long-standing 5th grade exchange program to North Carolina and the annual 6th grade graduation celebration. The whole community looks forward to traditional school events such as the Soup Supper and Penny Carnival. The school community cherishes the character and personalization of a small school. Families become close to the teachers and look forward to the unique activities and experiences of each classroom. The school has a strong, supportive parent body that shares the school's high expectations for behavior, character development and academic achievement.
Teaching and learning doesn't get much better.
