Lakehead Public Schools is committed to improving and supporting First Nation, Metis and Inuit student success by providing the resources required to assist staff and administrators. Our goal is to build a First Nation, Metis and Inuit cultural awareness in every school that promotes sensitivity to educational needs, a welcoming school climate and active parental involvement.
