The village of Lake Placid sits in the heart of New York’s beautiful Adirondack Mountains. Home to the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympic Games, Lake Placid today remains a mecca for national and international athletic competitions. Tourism provides residents with year-round employment and students with a diversity of influences rarely found in such a small community.
Lake Placid Central School has been offering students great experiences since the first “little red schoolhouse” was built in 1848. Today, students enjoy small class sizes, state of the art technology, college preparatory/AP classes and an abundance of extra-curricular opportunities.
MISSION STATEMENT: As a part of a unique Adirondack community, the Lake Placid Central School provides a welcoming, stimulating environment that inspires all students to achieve their academic, physical and social potential and to thrive in a dynamic global society.
