A Message from our Principal

Students & Parents,

If you are new to Lakeland Highlands Middle School let me be the first to welcome you! It is our belief that while at our school, every student has the ability to reach a high level of success and we are truly excited to see where your time at LHMS will take you.

Lakeland Highlands has a diverse selection of Academies to offer students. This provides us with the unique opportunity to use our students’ interests to create an engaging and rigorous academic environment. During your time at Lakeland Highlands, you can expect to not only grow in your academic knowledge, but also to see how the classes you are taking apply to the various career fields that your interests may guide you to explore.

We want every student who has the privilege to call themselves an LHMS Cougar, to head to High School knowing they have the skills necessary to become an advocate for themselves and take an active role in their academic pursuits. We take great pride in the fact that we are able to equip our students with the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve their goals, no matter what their dreams may be.

For those who are already a part of our LHMS family, we are excited to have you back for another year! We can’t wait to see what the year holds for you as you continue on your journey towards reaching star status this year.

Remember, our teachers set the stage, but it’s up to you to become the star!

Mrs. Telay Kendrick, LHMS Principal
