Welcome to Ludington High School

LHS StaffReady to serve. The Ludington High School staff assembled for a group photo Wednesday morning, August 31, 2016.

 Principal Dan Mesyar and Assistant Principal Steve ForsbergWe have a long tradition of excellence in academics and co-curricular activities at LHS, and are proud to continue that into the future. In addition to strong academics that include eight Advanced Placement offerings, we offer a robust, well-rounded curriculum in all facets of the visual, performing and applied arts. Ludington High School is a place where students can feel safe, be themselves and excel in a variety of areas. We place an emphasis on the relational aspect of teaching and learning, where teachers are devoted to knowing the individual student and his or her needs and helping them move forward. Through our one-to-one technology initiative and an emphasis on engaging teaching, we seek to prepare students for the world, the workplace and continuing education. We look forward to partnering with parents and the community to create highly successful learners for the 21st century. 

LHS Vision

In an environment which recognizes that learning is relational, students will engage in the complex questions that face them--in the world, the workplace, and continuing education--and use the perspective and skills of each field to address these issues.

CTE Educator Academy

The Educator Academy is designed for students to experience teaching before they head off to college to pursue a degree in education. During the year-long class students are placed in a variety of classrooms.  All students are encouraged to spend time in early and upper elementary, middle school, high school, special education, and regular education settings.  Not only do they get to experience working with students, they spend time researching the educational field writing papers, creating projects, and interviewing administrators and teachers. It's a great class for future teachers!

Questions about the CTE Educator Academy program are best directed toashoup@wseds.org

Independent Living Students Learn about Investing

Students in Mrs. Rowe's Independent Living course recently learned about investing from Jared Lauber of Harborfront Financial.  This event wrapped up a week-long unit about the importance of saving for retirement and large purchases, and students were able to ask questions and become more comfortable with the process of investing.  Many thanks to Harborfront Financial for sharing your expertise with our students!
