Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! We are honored that you chose Lithia Springs High School (LSHS) for your student. Please know that the faculty and staff at LSHS are committed to your student’s success, and, we understand that your partnership with the school is essential to the realization of our shared goals. To this end, we look forward to a successful school year working with you in service to our students!

In reflection, we enjoyed a very successful year in academics and athletics in 2016 -2017 and we look forward to continuing the same standard of excellence this school year! Some of the highlights include: the LSHS Leotechs robotics team qualified for state level competition and won the Delphi Excellence in Engineering award; LSHS students won several honors at the Georgia Science and Engineering Fair including the Naval Science Award-senior division, and the ASU Walton Sustainability Solutions Award; two LSHS students also won third honors in the senior division for their project. LSHS students also competed in the National History Day regional competition at Kennesaw State University and won second place which allowed the team to advance to the state level competition.

LSHS also excelled in athletics with the girls softball team earning a state playoff berth. The boys and girls basketball teams also advanced to the state playoffs. The LSHS boys baseball team was a state tournament qualifier as well. Finally, LSHS’ girls track team had student athletes qualify for the state track meet. 

In addition to the honors that LSHS has garnered, the school’s overall academic achievement continues to increase. LSHS’ 2016 CCRPI score of 73 represents a 16 point increase since the 2012 school year. In addition, LSHS’ 2016 graduation rate of 84.7% is an increase of 22% since 2012. 

The achievements of LSHS’ students in the classroom, in academic competitions, and on the playing field are the result of the efforts of its entire school community. As such, we look forward to even greater success in 2017-2018 and we know that with your support it will happen! Again, thank you for choosing LSHS and visiting our webpage.
