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.
