Liverpool High School is rich in tradition and accomplishments. We are proud of the fact that our students have the opportunity to challenge themselves in a variety of academic, extracurricular, and athletic programs. It is our goal to get all of our students involved with creating a positive school climate and culture that they will take pride in. I encourage all of our students to expand their horizons as a Liverpool High School student. Whether you are just transitioning to the main building from the Annex, or are in your final year at LHS, please join one of our many clubs, become involved with our music and art programs, or represent your school on one of our athletic teams. Become an active participant in the LHS tradition!
As many of you already know, we have a strong support system in place to support the academic and personal needs of all of our students. Our teachers, counselors, principals, and staff are committed to the success of all of our students. They work hard to provide a rigorous academic learning environment, while providing our students with the attention and support they need to be successful. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our staff members so they can assist you throughout the school year.
I wish each and every student and family only the best this school year!

Liverpool High School News:
The Liverpool Central School District is one of 133 school districts and Boards of Cooperative Educational Services in New York State to receive the 2016 School Safety Excellence Award from the Utica National Insurance Group.
The honor, which is presented annually, recognizes a school district’s safety efforts as it works to keep students, staff and visitors safe. Districts are evaluated using measurable assessments in several categories, including safety and policy procedures, transportation safety, playground safety, bullying prevention and fire safety.
Our district met more than 90 percent of the program’s assessment requirements, earning the titanium with honors award (the highest award possible). The district received a certificate to commemorate the honor and a $500 award for use in furthering our safety efforts.
We would like to thank our district employees for making this award possible. Each day, they go above and beyond to provide a safe and healthy environment for our students and community members.
Liverpool High School News:
Liverpool High School has earned a silver medal as part of the U.S. News & World Report’s Best High Schools rankings.
LHS received a state ranking of 170 out of 1,271 high schools across New York State, and a national ranking of 1,879 out of nearly 22,000 high schools across the country. This places LHS (according to U.S. News & World Report) in the top 8 percent of all schools in America.
To determine the 2016 rankings, U.S. News and the American Institutes for Research first analyzed data at a state level for how well students perform on state assessments, and then ranked high schools nationally based on how well the schools prepare students for college-level work.
U.S. News nationally ranked the 4,877 highest-scoring schools as gold, silver or bronze. The state rankings are based on whether a high school is nationally ranked gold or silver.
