 Student  Accomplishments
While small in population, our students continue to accomplished great things!  Combined with what our Seniors have earned through College Credit Plus courses at LCCC, Firelands High School graduating seniors consistently earn between 1,500 and 2,000 college credits, which equates to an estimated savings of over $230,000 at LCCC, and a four-year college savings of over $665,000. Overall, combining Scholarships and CCP credits, students generally earn over $1.25 million dollars in money toward a 4-year degree, which is a fantastic achievement.  
At our middle school, The STEM robotics program continues to grow and students have won their first Robotic Competition Award, The Energy Award, at the Pioneer Classic Competition. Firelands Middle School is a PLTW Distinguished School! Our youngest students at Firelands Elementary will have the opportunity to participate in the Arts, Lego Club, Camp Invention and they will continue to explore coding in technology classes.
