Junior School Program
Lakota Plains Junior School and Lakota Ridge Junior School are the two schools that feed into the Lakota West Freshman School. Directors teach two or three seventh and two eighth grade bands, with these bands meeting five days per week. Both schools offer after-school jazz band programs for eighth graders and second-semester for seventh graders. Near the end of their eighth grade year, students may audition for the Marching Firebirds.
Each year Lakota West High School band students offer a day to “Try Band” when 5th and 6th grade students can experience many of the available band instruments. All are welcome to come join the fun and Try Band!
