Community Consolidated School District 181

The Lane School is proud to be a U.S. Department of Education Blue Ribbon School. Built in 1956, The Lane is home to the Bulldogs, an exemplary teaching staff and a supportive school community. We often refer to ourselves as The Lane School Family, and it is our desire that all who enter our doors experience the intimate and welcoming atmosphere that makes our school so special!

Our school mission is rooted in our student-created Lane School D.I.G.N.I.T.Y. pledge: Today I will show Lane School D.I.G.N.I.T.Y. by:

Doing my best and working and working hard

Inspiring others

Giving my best effort

Never giving up

Including others and

Treating everyone with respect and kindness, but most of all...

You must work hard and have a great day!
