    The Highland Lakes Leadership Academy Library/Media Center mission is to teach students to be effective users of information, and to encourage and prepare students to be life-long learners.

    This mission is accomplished by:

    • providing instruction in information literacy
    • providing intellectual and physical access to informational materials in a variety of formats and media
    • stimulate an interest in reading, and in finding and using information and ideas
    • promoting the use of the media center by students and faculty
    • working with teachers to develop educational strategies to meet the information needs of students and to augment teaching
    • supporting the school's curriculum and reading initiatives

     Panthers' Den Makerspace

    What's a makerspace?  It's a collaborative work space where students can create, invent, and explore with a variety of materials and gadgets.  The process is open-ended; no finished goal is necessary. Makerspaces incorporate imagination, creativity, engineering, problem solving, exploration, and just plain fun!
