About Lancaster School District
Lancaster School District is located in the high desert about 60 miles northeast of Los Angeles and serves students in preschool through eighth grade. Most of the Districts 82.5 square miles lies within the City of Lancaster with a small portion in the unincorporated boundaries of Los Angeles County.
Educating Antelope Valley youth since 1885, we believe the District provides excellent educational opportunities for the more than 14,000 students who attend our schools. We have one alternative education, one K-8, four middle, and thirteen elementary schools. In addition, we serve over 800 students in our preschool program. All of our schools and preschool operate on a traditional schedule.
The District is an active participant with the seven other Antelope Valley elementary districts and the high school district to provide quality programs. Teams of teachers and administrators from these districts meet monthly to articulate the K-12 programs.
Well-maintained school buildings and grounds reflect the importance which the District places upon providing a safe and welcoming environment for students, staff, and parents.
The mission of the Lancaster School District, a group of dedicated and caring professionals, is, with the support of the community, to develop academic and personal excellence in all students through a rigorous curriculum infused with high expectations within a safe and secure environment fostering socially responsible citizens who enrich our diverse community.
