Welcome to the Laurens District 55 High School Webpage! 

 It is such an honor to be welcomed into the Laurens District High School family. I have found myself surrounded by an incredible group of teachers, administrators, staff, parents and students. The commitment I have seen to seeing students succeed has been truly inspirational. LDHS is a place of limitless potential where many great things are already happening and many great things are to come. More than anything I encourage you to reach out. This is a community school and we need your input, your involvement, and your support to make it a reflection of the high expectations and pride this community has in their school. I look forward to getting to know the entire LDHS family over the coming year.

Go Raiders!
