Dear Students, Parents and Visitors,
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Lebanon Public Schools website on behalf of the Lebanon Board of Education, administration, teachers and staff. Lebanon, Connecticut is a rural district in northern New London County. The Lebanon Public Schools serves approximately 1060 students from the Town of Lebanon and several neighboring communities. The district is comprised of three schools, Lebanon Elementary School, Lebanon Middle School and Lyman Memorial High School. Lyman Memorial High School includes the Lebanon Regional Agriculture Science & Technology Center.
The local bumper sticker proudly states, “Lebanon is Farm Country”. Indeed, Lebanon and the surrounding communities are steeped in rich agricultural tradition that is alive and well today. The school system operates to honor the local rural culture while providing a pre-K through Grade 12 educational program that will support students in achieving the knowledge, skills and abilities they will need to be successful in the global community. Curriculum across all grades is developed and implemented to be engaging, challenging and foster cognitive development for our students. Our pre-K program is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and Lyman Memorial High School is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). The Lebanon Public School students perform well on state and national assessments, are active in the community, and participate in acclaimed arts and athletic programs. The students in the Agricultural Science and Technology Education program harvest local, state and national awards on a regular basis.
You will find the 2016-2019 Strategic Plan, plan updates, as well as the 2016-2017 Annual Report can be found under the District Information tab at the top of the page. 2017-2018 brings an expansion of our implementation of educational technology with increased access in Grades K-3. Even our youngest students will begin to learn simple coding using pictures and symbos; a 5th Grade music class will be technology-based and an AP Computer Science course will be offered at Lyman. In keeping with the Strategic Plan, student voice was used to add football for Lyman students, via a coop program with Coventry, Bolton, and Windham Tech and girls' volleyball for Lebanon Middle School students.
As you navigate through the district and school websites, you will come to recognize the Lebanon Public Schools is focused on meeting the educational needs of all students. I hope you enjoy your virtual visit. Sincerely,
Robert J. Angeli
Superintendent of the Lebanon Public Schools
