Elementary School

  • Girls celebrate their reading challenge win

The Lake Placid Elementary School educates approximately 260 students in a Kindergarten to Grade 5 setting. Our accomplished faculty of teachers are committed to providing the best educational opportunities at each and every grade level. We expect that our school will have a positive environment where everyone displays responsibility, respect, and cooperation. A community atmosphere exists through parental support and involvement, as well as community use of the building.

The mission of the Lake Placid Central School is to provide a “welcoming, stimulating environment that inspires all students to achieve their academic, physical and social potential and to thrive in a dynamic global society.” We all work together as a team to promote that value both within ourselves and our students.
