THE HISTORY OF LAKER SCHOOLS.
The residents of Huron County have been blessed with fertile farmland and wonderful natural resources. The founding fathers also placed a priority on the education of our children. Their values of education combined with a strong work ethic have provided communities with a solid base on which we can build the futures of our children.
The benefits of living in a rural area are reinforced in the educational programs we offer in our schools. The Laker family is made up of three strong communities that are working together to offer positive educational opportunities for our future leaders.
The focus is on student achievement for each individual student, earnestly believing teaching good citizenship, along with relevant curriculum choices, adds to the success of the entire community.
The following is a history of the early development of Pigeon, Bay Port and Elkton schools, including the rural districts surrounding the area from the 1870’s to the present system of consolidation.
