Thank you for considering Lakewood High School as an option for your child’s secondary education. We believe that LHS is a special place and can offer your child opportunities in academics, the arts, athletics and other co-curricular activities unmatched by other area high schools.
Students spend their years at LHS opening their minds to new ideas, new perspectives and new interests and graduate as independent thinkers with 21st century skills. Our graduates are well prepared to navigate a complex and changing world with self-reliance, confidence and curiosity.
The four years spent in high school are ones of great self-discovery and growth and at Lakewood High, the avenues for this exploration are many. Your student may select from a broad curriculum including 12 AP courses and dozens of science and humanities electives plus a full complement of West Shore Career-Technical programs. Whether it’s in English class or on the concert stage, in a science lab or on an athletic field, in an art studio or at the Ranger Café,
interests for every student can be met at Lakewood High.
One of the best ways to experience LHS is to spend the day shadowing a current student through his or her schedule. Below is information to get started on setting up a date:
Shadowing is scheduled on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month. Space may be limited due to student ambassador availability and/or special school events.
Current district students will have a chance to shadow during the district's annual "Buddy Day" at LHS.
To reserve a date, please call Debra Diamond in the Guidance Department at 216-529-4032. Ms. Diamond will provide more details on drop-off and pick-up times and will contact you when a student ambassador and a shadowing date has been selected.
On the shadowing date, your student should check in with security at the west main visitor entrance and will be directed to the Guidance office. He or she should bring a brown bag lunch or money to buy lunch.
Parents interested in a building tour should contact Communications Specialist Christine Gordillo at 216-529-4074 and she can arrange for a parent ambassador to be in contact to set up a tour.
