Lorain City Schools is the tenth largest urban school district in Ohio and serves more than 9,000 students with a diverse and unique population.
Graduates of Lorain City Schools include nationally-known poets, award-winning actors, honored military leaders, politicians, world-business leaders, and countless others who in part attribute their successes in life to the quality education received from Lorain.
Committed to academic achievement, Lorain City Schools posted one of the highest improvement rates in the entire state - fifth out of 613 school districts – on the 2003 proficiency tests. Over the last six years, the District has experienced steady academic growth and recently moved up the state’s academic rating ladder to “Continuous Improvement.”
Formed in 1898, Lorain City Schools include 17 academic buildings and an administrative center. The District's $216 million facilities construction project has provided nine new buildings – seven elementary and two middle schools. The construction process has also started on four additional buildings including a new Admiral King High School and new Whittier Middle School.
A collaborative effort between the Lorain City Schools and the community, design and development concepts were initially derived through interactive work sessions with parents, students, faculty, staff, school board and other community members. Many of the ideas presented through these meetings were incorporated into the new buildings and will enhance performance.
The new schools provide improved academic environments and the most technologically advanced schools in the area. Every new classroom is equipped with SMARTBoards, millennium-age chalkboards that function like touch-screen computers, and advanced audio/visual equipment. Lorain’s new schools provide the environments which can train our children for the challenges of the future and a competitive global environment.
Improved academics, enhanced safety, and athletic programs which are being rejuvenated to county-wide prominence are restoring Lorain City Schools pride and dominance. At Lorain City Schools, we can and we will succeed.
