Lake Nokomis Community School


Pre K-8 Requests. High School Requests.


The mission of Lake Nokomis Community School is to empower every student to learn and grow every day. We represent diverse cultures and experiences which allows for instruction in the meaning and value of community and the importance of life long learning. We are nurturing great potential every day!


Our school community is housed on two campuses southeast of Lake Nokomis: Wenonah for Kindergarten-2nd grade, and Keewaydin for grades 3-8. We celebrate our neighborhood school culture and like to be known as a big city school with a small town heart.




For the 2016-17 school year, please use the school request site to request: High School request site.
- A school for an incoming kindergartner
- A new school for a current K-11th grade student
- A middle school (only if your 5th grader wants to request a school other then the middle school pathway)
- A high school for all incoming 9th graders
The site is easy to use and requires your address with zip code to learn more about your school options.
