About: At Fountain Lake School District, each school is separated by buildings; however, the elementary school, middle school and high school are all on the same campus. "Our district is currently in the process of developing a Master Facilities plan to complement the current campus, as well as to better facilitate the future expansion to address student growth. The Fountain Lake Board of Education consists of five community members that reside within the district boundaries. Each May, rotating members run for re-election for a three-year term. The mission of Fountain Lake School District is 'Supporting Every Student Every Day for Success.' The vision of the Fountain Lake School District is to partner with its community to inspire, motivate, and prepare every student to be a confident, productive, knowledgeable, goal-oriented citizen. The focus is to build quality relationships with all students in order to provide a level of support to assist them with achieving their goals academically, socially, and emotionally, as well as to prepare them for employment," according to its website.
