LHS TIGER TALK
September 16, 2022
Good Afternoon Loveland High School Families,
What a great way to end the week for our District! If you haven't seen it, the state report card information came out yesterday and we are 1 of 12 districts (out of the 607) in the state of Ohio to achieve 5's in every category (more information can be found below)! This is a tribute to all of the hard work of your student and constant support of YOU!
Next Wednesday is Club Fair that will take place during all three lunches. Encourage your student to get involved in one of the many clubs and activity groups we have here at LHS!
Have a great weekend!

Loveland City School District Earns 5-Star Report Card
Loveland City School District is excited to announce the results of the 2021-2022 Ohio School Report Card. The district scored a 5-star rating in every category.
“This is a tremendous achievement for Loveland City School District, and a testament to the hard work of our students and their families, and the outstanding support offered by our outstanding staff,” Superintendent Mike Broadwater said.
Loveland City School District earned five stars in every component of the Ohio School Report Card, including Achievement, Early Literacy, Gap Closing, Graduation Rate, and Progress. Loveland City School District is only one of 12 districts across the state of Ohio to earn all five-star ratings, placing the district in the top 2% in Ohio.
“Two goals of our #beLOVEland Strategic Vision are student success and fiscal responsibility. Being able to achieve at a high level while keeping a close eye on the bottom line is further evidence that we are delivering a fantastic educational value for our Loveland City Schools community. We look forward to their continuing support,” Broadwater said.
