Lone Peak High School (LPHS) opened its doors in 2009 and serves students in grades 9-12. As the newest edition to the Big Sky School District, LPHS has a strong record of academic achievement, including an impressive university acceptances list. We are proud to announce that Lone Peak High School is now an IB World School offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program beginning with the class of 2019. For more information, please see the IB Diploma Handbook at the bottom of this page.
At Lone Peak, our teaching and learning is guided by a standards-based, constructivist approach. Utilizing Montana State Standards for Math, Language Arts, Science and Social Studies, our study of core subjects is engaging and rigorous. Our Math and Science classes are mixture of integrated studies and single-subject studies such as Biology, Calculus, and Physics. In Language Arts, students study a wide-range of literary works while continuing to cultivate their research skills as well as their written and verbal expression. Our Social Studies courses entail a global, national, and state perspective through the lens of Government and History.
In addition to the core subjects, students at Lone Peak High School receive a holistic education through specialist courses. We offer an enriching course of study with a second language – Spanish, Music, Art, Design Technology, Film, and Health Enhancement. Students may also opt to enroll in the Montana Digital Academy to explore other interests and pursuits.
To complement our curricular approach, students partake in experiential learning in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and beyond. Students participate in the yearly Expedition, downhill skiing days, field research, and a myriad of local field trips to enhance the classroom experience. Guest speakers/experts are a regular feature at Lone Peak High School in our state-of-the-art Warner Miller Performing Arts Center.
