We are excited to have three public school buildings spread throughout the district with Platte Center Elementary, Shell Creek Elementary, and Lakeview Jr./Sr. High School. Lakeview Preschool is also located at Platte Center Elementary. In addition to LCS buildings, inside district boundaries are two K-8 parochial schools with Christ Lutheran Elementary School and St. John’s Lutheran School.
