Prior lake high school class of 2015
Prior Lake High School (PLHS) is located in Savage, Minnesota, covering grades 9-12. The school is part of the South Suburban Conference. It has approximately 2,400 students currently enrolled, along with a teaching and administrative staff of around 400. A book, "Another Planet: A Year in the Life of a Suburban High School", was written by author Elinor Burkett and paints an inaccurate portrait of life in the school and around the city of Prior Lake. In 2003 when the new high school building opened its doors in its current location of Savage, MN, the decision was made to keep the name "Prior Lake" High School because of the rich history of the school. The principal's name is David Lund. The school currently utilizes a 6-period system.
