Coeur d‘Alene Public Schools


We invest in each student to prepare, challenge and advance well-educated, resilient and future-ready citizens.

Our New Hayden Lake Center

  • The Hayden Lake Center mascot will be an otter.

    Hayden Lake Center will serve K through 4th grade. The addition of a 5th grade class is a possibility if there is enough parent interest. If your family is zoned for this school and would be interested in a fifth grade class, contact your current elementary school to have your fifth grade student be put on the wait list.

    Bill Rutherford, principal of Fernan STEM Academy has been assigned to this new school. He encourages parents, students and community members to contact him with any questions or suggestions about this exciting new venture.
