Lakes High School is located in Lakewood, Washington. It serves students from 9th grade to 12th grade. It is one of the two major high schools in the Clover Park School District.

Daffodil Festival[edit]

Every year, Lakes participates in the Pierce County Daffodil Festival. A competition is held in house to select the Lakes Princess, who goes on to compete against other regional schools, for the Daffodil Festival Queen title. The Queen title is considered the highest honor of the regional festival. The Lakes band accompanies the float of Lakes princesses every year in the parade, held annually in April.[citation needed]


The Lakes football team has had several championship-level seasons. The team won the state championship in 1997, was a state champion runner-up in 2000, placed third in 3A WIAA State playoffs in 1999, 2002, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2015. The Lancers also produced a regular season winning streak of 45 games during 1999-2003 before losing to Clover Park High School. The football team won the league championship in 1970, 1973, 1974, 1990, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011.
