Dear Lancaster High School Parents and Students:

      On behalf of the Lancaster High School Faculty and Staff, I would like to welcome everyone to the 2015-2016 school year. The anticipation of a new school year always brings with it excitement and nervousness for students and staff alike. We are looking forward to providing a solid well-rounded education for the students of Lancaster High School. 
      This year we have had the added piece of major renovations to our building over the summer. Outside contractors and our own maintenance and custodial staffs have been working tirelessly to allow for as little disruption to opening day as possible. Some changes to our summer procedures have been made and that will be articulated more specifically in our correspondence coming home.  These are the finishing touches on a Capital project that was approved by voters in 2012.  It is beginning to take shape and I’m sure you will be impressed with many of the improvements, including the main office, counseling office, and fitness center to name a few.   
      Construction is not the only change occurring this summer.  We have shuffled some offices to better accommodate the needs of a few departments.  These changes will be outlined throughout the school year.  We are in the process of infusing over 400 Google Chromebooks into our arsenal to provide faculty and students with the most up to date technological support for learning.   Students will be given a school email account to use during the school year for internship opportunities, college applications and scholarship monitoring.  These are just a few of the changes being made this summer.
      The administrative team, along with our dedicated and talented faculty and staff, will work hard to maintain the rich tradition that has been the heart of Lancaster High School. The challenge is to keep the tradition alive while striving to increase the academic success of each and every student. With the support of the community, we believe we are up to the challenge. The high school experience encompasses enjoying the moment while providing a base for a successful future. We will continue our efforts to support students to find the proper balance between the two. Our goals, once again, include preparing students for higher education, and ultimately, to succeed in the competitive work force. We want to continue our recent successes which include a graduation rate over 98% and a 50% increase in the number of Advanced Placement tests taken. We will continue to strive for academic excellence while not losing sight of fiscal responsibility.
      Lancaster High School is proud to offer 50 co-curricular opportunities, providing every student an option to explore a passion and enhance their educational experience. It begins with our Freshmen class and continues for four years, culminating with our Seniors. We are committed to providing each student with an education where information and skills are learned, knowledge is examined, and ideas are analyzed and evaluated. Whether it be sports, clubs, or music, please encourage your son or daughter to get involved. I invite you to check our website at for more information regarding any of these activities. If you still have questions, please call the school at 686-3255 to obtain the needed information.
      High school is a special time in a child’s life. It is a time of academic and personal challenge, and a time to make important decisions about their present and future plans. We welcome you to participate in our school community and to enjoy the excitement of learning. The entire faculty and staff look forward to working with you to promote a bright future for all Lancaster students.
