Welcome to Ludington High School

Ludington High School Staff

 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.

IPad Return

K through 11 students will be turning in their district provided iPad after the conclusion of the school year. Since students will not be in classrooms, we have decided to collect iPads at the food drops on Monday, June 8th.

The food drop off times and locations are on this page, click here to find them.

On Tuesday, June 9th and Wednesday, June 10th we will follow the same drop off procedure we did with seniors but we will have the drop off at the LASD Central Business Office on Tinkham Avenue. We will have tables set up just west of the building. Drop off times will start Tuesday at 7:30 am until 1 pm and then from 5 pm to 7 pm. Then on Wednesday the 10th we'll just have the drive-through open from 7:30 am to 1 pm.

It will be critical for the bus drop off on Monday for parents and students to make sure there is a note with the student’s name, grade, and teacher with the iPad. We will have bags available. But we won't have a lot of time to write notes on the iPads if the stickers are not intact.

We will need to collect the iPad, both parts of the case and the brick and cord. Families will be charged for any missing items.


Sign out of Apple ID

Remove Passcode

Charge iPad and leave it on

If there is no identification on the iPad write your name, grade and teacher on a piece of paper

We will supply plastic bags to put iPads in


Missing cords and bricks will be charged $15 each and will be added to your student's PowerSchool account. For iPads not turned in the charge is $400.

**High School students may come to the high school in the month of June to pick up any items left in their locker. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the main office at 845-3880.


Reminder - Students must ride inside the vehicle.  Families are not allowed to ride in the back of a truck.

Class of 2020 Scholarship Awards Video


The Ludington High School Class of 2020 is full of extraordinary students who have excelled in all areas both in and outside of the classroom. To honor our seniors’ accomplishments and support their future plans our Ludington community members have once again awarded a generous amount of scholarship funds. Ludington Area Schools wishes to say a sincere thank you to all of the scholarship donors for continued support and investment in the future of our LHS seniors. Your generosity is well placed in these deserving seniors. 

A scholarship awards video was produced in partnership with donors, LHS faculty and community member support. While we wish we could gather in the normal fashion to honor the hard work of this year’s senior class, we hope this video and the generous scholarships given by donors will convey how much we appreciate the Class of 2020 seniors. 

The following YouTube video will allow our seniors, their families, community members, and those beyond to watch the 2020 LHS scholarship awards and join us in honoring the Ludington High School Class of 2020.
