Welcome to Ludington High School

Parent Survey

Dear LHS Parents,

As we begin the 2nd trimester at LHS, we are seeking parent feedback. Please take the time to respond to the following survey. We plan to more regularly seek your feedback during times of shutdown. This survey will continue to go out as a way for parents to give us frequent feedback about their student's learning experiences. We will use this data, along with feedback from similar student and staff surveys to inform possible adjustments to the learning experience this year at LHS. 

LHS Feedback: Parent Survey

Questions or concerns can also always be directed to LHS Admin (dmesyar@lasd.net or sforsberg@lasd.net). 


All PLATO or EDMENTUM courses will begin on Friday, December 4th.  

Trimester 2 Schedules are Live

Trimester 2 schedules are now live in PowerSchool. Student schedule changes may still be made over the next few days. These changes are the result of staffing and course offering limitations and cannot be avoided. Therefore, you may still see some necessary changes made to student schedules. Attached you will find a link to a Google Form for students needing schedule changes. Use this to request schedule changes with your counselor. 

Just a reminder that today, Monday 11/30, is a make-up exam day for any exams that were affected by Canvas issues last Wednesday. Teachers contacted students on Canvas to let them know if their exam was affected by this issue and to give instructions about any makeup. To facilitate this students may see both their T1 and T2 courses in Canvas for a period of time. 

Tuesday 12/1/2020 will be the first day of Tri2 classes. All students need to log on to Canvas Tuesday to view their weekly schedules and connect with their T2 teachers. If a student is signed up to take an Edmentum course, these will not become live until Friday, December 4.

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.
