College is more selective and expensive than ever, but a great ACT® score can open doors to funding and admission. If your student is trying to get into the college of his choice or obtain scholarship money, and you’re worried his ACT® score might hold him back: There is hope.
We are once again offering our students the opportunity to partner with TorchPrep™, an innovative test training program that cracks the code on improving ACT® scores. Through strategy-driven training focused on repetition, customization, and student motivation, TorchPrep™ will help your student overcome the ACT®.
I strongly believe this program will be beneficial for you. TorchPrep™ has continually yielded outstanding ACT® score for our students.
TorchPrep™ is worth it!

Photocopies of your vehicle registration and driver’s license need to be submitted before the parking pass will be issued. A parking pass is $40 for the year. Students must pay all back-fees before receiving a parking pass.
Picture Days Final picture retake for both campuses is October 16.
Students who lose their identification cards will be assessed a replacement charge. Students need their student I.D. for lunch and computer use in the media center.
Senior Pictures – Seniors who have not yet had their senior portrait taken need to do so in order to be in Lakota West’s Yearbook. Seniors must submit a wallet portrait to the yearbook committee by January 6th in order to be in the yearbook. (Please visit the Lakota West High School Website and click on Senior Photo Submit.) Because all Lakota West students are required to have a student identification card with them at all times, seniors will also have their pictures taken on September 8. This does not take the place of their senior portrait.
Communication – Our webpage, www.lakotawesthigh.com, will carry a great deal of information. Documents to start the school year, daily announcements, monthly calendar, news and upcoming events are but a few of the items found. In addition, our weekly electronic newsletter, scholarship bulletin and guidance calendar are all found on the webpage. You will find the following information/forms online by clicking on the link above. If you do not have access to these forms online, please pick up a packet from the main office at Lakota West.
