Annual District Profile

The information provided below is intended to supplement our state report card which contains demographic details and results of state tests. Test results are important, but they do not provide a full picture of what makes our district a great place to learn and work!

In spring 2019, we launched Warrior Stack, an athletic training program for students in grades 7-12  that focuses on agility, speed, mobility and flexibility in a student's sport. With the partnerships of LHS coaches, athletes are provided opportunities to embrace challenges, both physically and mentally and become more educated on their fitness, recovery and sportsmanship. Student athletes can participate in the Warrior Stack program seasonally or throughout the calendar year.

Beginning in the fall of 2018, we began piloting a Spanish immersion program in first grade.  In a language immersion program, the target language is acquired through content instruction, not direct language instruction.  Students in the program receive science and math instruction in Spanish.  Lebanon is one of only 7 districts in the state of Ohio to have a language immersion program, and Bowman Primary is one of only 11 school buildings in Ohio to have a language immersion program.  Learn more here.

2018-2019 also saw the launch of the Career Experience Class at Lebanon High School.  This unique high school course places students in shadowing, internship, and co-op experiences as they research career paths.  Learn more here.
