Principal's Message 

It is hard to believe that we are three weeks into the third marking period already.  This year has most definitely has had its ups and downs, but through it all our students and our staff have remained focused.  We continue to look for ways each day to honor members of our school community and find joy in our day.

Honor and joy come from celebrating our students and our staff.  Since the beginning of November, we have celebrated the following:

  • 1st Marking Period Honor Roll Students – 360 of them!
  • Academic Incentive Winners in December – 530 students
  • One of our TWO QuestBridge Scholars matched to a school – Yale as a matter of fact.  This means four years of college 100% free!
  • Our JV Wrestling Team, consisting of four wrestlers, placed 11th out of 24 teams in the county meet.
  • Two winter track athletes competed in the 2A State Championships
  • We have a WJZ Hometown Hero
  • We have an Outstanding Student Accomplishment in Gifted and Talented Education Awardee
  • Our Teacher of the Year nominee is Ms. Sarah Kirby, Spanish Teacher and World Language Chair
  • Our  cheerleading team went to Regionals
  • Our College Acceptance Wall continues to grow every day
  • We had 10 students interview for internship opportunities with BGE
  • Four of our Advanced Placement teachers have been invited to participate in a weeklong AP Summer Institute in June
  • Students have recovered 68 credits in our SPARC program for credit recovery to remain on track for graduation or to finish graduation requirements
  • We have resumed our partnership with ClancyWorks to support our dance program
  • We continue to welcome families to access our Community Food Pantry on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month from 2:30 – 5:00 PM
  • And we are preparing to honor 316 honor roll students from the 2nd marking period and host a special event for those whose unweighted GPA for the 2nd marking period was 3.75 or higher.

In 12 weeks, this is a quite a bit to celebrate and be proud of. I thank you for trusting us to cultivate the excellence that exists within your child. 

Our 3rd and 4th marking periods promise to be just as exciting, especially for our 11th and 12th graders.  Please take note of the following important dates:

Through it all, Lansdowne High School remains the center of an inclusive, culturally diverse community where we praise our collective contributions with honor and compassion. We provide students with the opportunities to create and define their purpose and encourage them to persevere though rigorous challenges with courage, commitment, and creativity.  Our staff promises to honor and utilize the gifts each member of our school community possesses to create habits of respect, responsibility and readiness by offering a variety of academic and extra-curricular opportunities. 

It continues to be an honor to be the principal of this school and getting to know your child and the community. I look forward to the continued opportunities for us to work together in supporting our students.


With gratitude, 

Allison Seymour
