Welcome to Lancaster High School. Our administrative team and highly qualified staff strive to support our students' academic, career, developmental, and extra-curricular needs. By using data to drive our programs and services, offering various career and technology courses, as well as affording students the opportunity to participate in clubs and athletic programs, our students have the ability to reach their maximum potential.
Communication amongst all stakeholders - parents, students, community partners, and staff - is essential to our students' success. As principal of Lancaster High School, I look forward to working with you to ensure that each student has an outstanding high school experience.
