Lester Prairie is a small school with big opportunities. LP Schools currently have 475 students enrolled with an average grade level size of 36 students. The average elementary classroom size is 20.

Lester Prairie High School offers a wide range of classes to support the wide range of interests our students have: College in the School, PSEO, College Online courses, and Concurrent Certified Technical Education (CTE) courses.

You can do it all at LP Schools. More than 65 percent of the junior and senior high school students participate in extracurricular activities, such as drama, robotics, band, athletics, and Knowledge Bowl, to name a few.

Lester Prairie Schools recognizes the strong community support and the success it creates for our students who have gone on to participate in regional, state, national, and international competitions the last several years.
