Lejeune High School is located aboard Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base and is operated by the Department of Defense Education Activity. It is the only high school out of the seven schools within the North Carolina, Camp Lejeune District. Founded in 1944, the originally named Camp Lejeune High School was led by a principal and a Marine Officer, thus requiring certain military expectations to be followed such as grooming standards and locker inspections. The first campus was located on Brewster Boulevard. Then in 1961 it was relocated to Stone street. A new campus was built for the school in 1990. In 1968, Camp Lejeune High School was renamed to Lejeune High School.
The Lejeune High School mascot is the "Devilpup" after the proud Marine Corps "Devildog" history earned at the Battle of Belleau Wood in World War I. The Germans named the marines "Teufel Hunden" for their courage and fighting ability.
Currently, LHS serves approximately 500 students in grades nine through twelve. All classes meet each Monday and then rotate on an alternating schedule the remainder of the week. There are a variety of clubs, activities, and sports programs for students.
