• Welcome to Lakeview Community Schools!  Lakeview has a proud tradition of providing excellent education, winning activities, and putting students first in all decision-making.  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, as well as two K-8 parochial schools with Christ Lutheran Elementary School and St. John’s Lutheran School.

    Lakeview Community School District is a K-12 public school district that enjoys strong community support and provides a quality education for approximately 900 students. In 2017-18, Lakeview demographics consisted of 863 students with 41.95% on free/reduced lunch, 16.45% in special education, and 9.84% as English Language Learners.  The students are a combination of children residing in suburban Columbus, rural Columbus and Platte Center, as well as industrial tract residents. There are sixty-four (64) certified staff members, seventy-four (74) non-certified staff members and five (5) administrators employed by the district.

    The District offers a broad range of academic and extracurricular opportunities for its students. In addition, college level courses are available on campus and through the Columbus Campus of Central Community College. Migrant Education, English as a Second Language, and Reading First instruction are also available. 

    Lakeview has a strong academic background that has been displayed with strong NSCAS scores and ACT scores above the state average.  We offer a vast curriculum that includes quality STEM education programing, a world-class agriculture education program, and career education opportunities that are second-to-none.
