At Big Lake Schools, we pride ourselves on being the perfect size. We are small enough to offer the many benefits that come with being a small school district, but we are large enough to be able to offer exceptional programming that only large districts are able to offer.
ACADEMIC BENEFITS OF SMALL SCHOOLS
Our teachers expect more from their students because they take the time to learn about each student and develop an interest in each student’s success. Teachers also expect more out of each other because of increased collaboration and professional development opportunities. Additionally, our staff have greater contact with parents and see them as an important element in student success.
WHERE EVERYONE KNOWS YOUR NAME
Anonymity doesn't exist at Big Lake Schools. Our staff are proud to know students by name. Research has shown that being known by your teachers and peers makes a difference in both student achievement and creating a safe environment. Because students know one another, they take more responsibility for their own behavior and the behavior of their classmates.
OFFERINGS ABOVE & BEYOND THE BASICS
At Big Lake Schools, the core subjects of math, language arts, social studies and science take center stage; however, we also offer courses that go outside the basics and challenge students. We offer a wide variety of gifted and talented programming for those students whose academic abilities have surpassed their peers. Unique to Big Lake is our focus on citizenship, STEM Education, and apprenticeships.
