Founded in 1895, Lick-Wilmerding High School stands apart as a profoundly unique educational institution. On our website you will learn more about the dynamic and challenging academic program, the way we weave innovation into the curriculum through the study of the technical arts, the opportunities students have to explore their emotional and physical selves through visual arts, performing arts, and athletics, and how we ask students to engage with the world in order to enact positive change.
What may be a bit less visible are the relationships embedded in the fabric of the school that supports these many endeavors of our students. At LWHS, students forge lifelong friendships with their peers, with faculty, with the subjects they study, and with those individuals who need their talents and compassion in order to realize their full potential. These relationships are born out of a passion shared by all members of the LWHS community to be fully engaged with each other and with all that our world has to offer.
