• Welcome to Loris High School!

  • It is an honor to be a part of the Lion Community and Principal of Loris High School.  I look forward to working with the faculty/staff, students, parents and the community to continue the success which Loris High School has enjoyed over the past several years.  Our students continue to achieve at very high levels.

    The Lions had another successful year in 2016-2017. Our graduation rate continues to be above 80% and our goal is for every student to graduate from Image of principal high school.  Our EOCT scores continue to be strong, especially when compared to schools throughout the state which are similar to our school.  Our Medical Magnet Program continues to grow.  Students are presently interning with our Athletic Trainers.  We are very proud that we have fully implemented the PDL Initiative and every student has their own personal technology device for use in every classroom.  We are also blessed  to have a large collection of digital content software as well as other online resources available to us.  Further, we are excited that LHS is consistently implementing Blended Learning strategies in all classes.  Our students must be college and career ready upon graduation from Loris High School.

    Congratulations to all our students, teachers, staff, parents and the Loris Community.....Great job!  I strongly encourage all students to take advantage of the many experiences, both curricular and extracurricular, which are offered at Loris High School.  Become involved in one of our many clubs and organizations.  We also have a great athletic program at Loris High School and I encourage you to participate in these sports.  Above all, dedicate yourself to work hard and prepare yourself for your plans beyond high school.

    I look forward to the 2017-2018 school year.  I personally invite you to visit our school and become involved in the many great things which are happening at Loris High School.  Please feel free to contact us with questions or concerns.
