Welcome to Lawrence High School

 Home of the Chesty Lions
roar  
AT LHS WE R.O.A.R. with Pride! Respect, Our Best Effort, Academic Achievement, Responsibility

Lawrence High School has a rich and proud heritage of excellence in academics and extracurricular activities.
 
In 1857 public donations built the first "Lawrence High School", the Quincy School
and on March 26, 1954 Lawrence High opened at it's present location.
 
OUR MISSION: The Lawrence High School Community will educate all students and empower them to be responsible citizens and life-long learners in a changing world
 
RED & BLACK: As far as can be ascertained, our school colors date back to 1907 when our football teams wore red and black long socks
 
WE ARE THE LIONS: The Lion was first used as a school symbol in 1930
 
CHESTY THE LION: The Chesty Lion symbol was first drawn by Paul Coker, a Lawrence Memorial High School graduate, in 1946. He went on to become a well-know cartoonist and is the creator of the beloved "Frosty the Snowman". Chesty the Lion is named "Chesty" because he is PROUD of LHS and the ideals for which it stands
