Help Shape The Future When You Serve On The LILA School Board
The Lakes International School Board manages and maintains the integrity of our unique charter school. The Board’s mission is to improve the academic achievement of students and overall program effectiveness. We have high expectations for everyone—students, teachers, administrators, parents, community volunteers, and support groups.
Lakes International values individuality, and recognizes that everyone has a different set of strengths and needs. We value community and we strive to make connections with others in our school, our community, and beyond. Lakes International will provide a quality education that prepares critically thinking, socially capable, culturally aware young people to thrive in a diverse, global society.
Share your expertise, knowledge, and experience to help LILA realize its vision by serving on the Board of Directors.
