iPad Pick-up for Online Learners

All LHS completely online learners may pick up their device Wednesday, September 2, from 1:00-5:00 pm or Thursday, September 3, from 8:00 am-3:00 pm. If you have questions feel free to call the High School Office at 845-3880.

All other students (in-person and hybrid learners) will receive their iPad on the first day of school. Being able to offer a fully comprehensive high school experience is a lot of work and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate this uncharted territory. We encourage you to zoom in to our coffee with the principal session this evening at 5:00 pm.

Coffee with The Principals (Online Q & A Format)

Tonight at 5:00 pm, join Principal Dan Mesyar and Assistant Principal Steve Forsberg virtually as they talk about the new school year.  They encourage you to come with questions so they can help your family feel comfortable about the start of the year, but you're also welcome to just listen. Visit this Google Meet at 5:00 pm to connect.

Freshmen Orientation PIL3OT Video 

As freshmen are gearing up to begin at LHS, an orientation video was created to give them some insight into what they can expect this year.  Our PIL3OTs are Junior and Senior Orioles ready to help freshmen feel comfortable as they begin high school. Please encourage your freshman (or transfer student) to watch this video prior to the first day of school. It might also be a great refresher for older students.

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.
















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.
