Mission Statement

Leominster High School is a student-centered community of life-long learners charged with the challenge of promoting excellence through intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development in a safe and secure environment. Students are encouraged and supported by the consistent efforts of the home, school and community in this continual pursuit of excellence.In fostering quality, we advocate that students think and communicate effectively; that they contribute positively to society; that they develop the skills to work both individually and cooperatively; that they accept responsibility for self and others; and that they respect differences among people of diverse cultures and lifestyles.

While we embrace the concept of membership in an ever-changing global village, we balance this with a deep commitment to the rich tradition of the Leominster community. As a microcosm of this changing society, Leominster High School is impacted by ongoing technological advancements, the changing career arena, education reform, cultural diversification, and social change. We respond by implementing a variety of teaching strategies which addresses diverse learning styles and interdisciplinary learning; by teaching the skills necessary to succeed in the workplace; by systemic expansion of computer literacy; by furnishing opportunities for a greater global consciousness; and by cultivating in students sound attitudes toward physical and mental health, and effective decision-making.Our great challenge—to help all students gain the personal and academic strengths necessary to live rewarding lives in the midst of rapid change—is one which demands strong partnerships between home, school and community.
