Head of School
Welcome to Lick-Wilmerding High School
We are so excited for you to learn more about our vibrant and dynamic learning community. I hope that through this site you will see the many ways in which we live our mission through our commitment to public purpose, the many ways we foster community, and our robust academic and arts curricula. The relationships forged at Lick-Wilmerding are the foundation for a joyful and connected educational experience that facilitates a practice for students to contribute to the world with confidence and compassion.
Our school lives the head, heart, hands motto in every aspect of our programming. We value the diverse backgrounds and perspectives in our community that create safe, joyful spaces for learning where everyone can bring their whole selves, feel known and heard, lift each other up, and engage in all aspects of life at LWHS and beyond. Our faculty and staff inspire students to become lifelong learners by translating curiosities into real-world experiences. LWHS courses develop design thinking that allows students to impact their school community and beyond the school walls. Additionally, the academic experience is enriched by The Center for Civic Engagement through public purpose programming, co-curricular activities, retreats, affinity spaces, internships, social justice events and more that allows for students to live LWHS’ mission and meaningfully engage with local, national, and global communities. Every year we see students from all walks of life develop into courageous leaders who think independently, work collaboratively, learn joyfully, and champion change.
When you come to visit our campus, you may see student’s designing and building new outdoor furniture for a local elementary school, celebrating Carnaval, music performances in the courtyard, students meeting with their teachers for their next assessment, Coach Smith leading the Lick-Wilmerding cheer, and generally community members showing up for one another. We are a lively, dynamic and connected community, and we have a lot of fun together!
