Students attend classes throughout the campus and enjoy the advantages of a large high school and smaller learning communities. The school is up to date with modern technology needed to support the school curriculum.

School safety

The Safety and Security of all LRHSD students and staff is a top priority which is evidenced by the following security initiatives already in place at all LRHSD schools. Police officers with marked vehicles are assigned to each school reinforcing high visibility police presence. All LRHSD schools have Security Staff (several retired Law Enforcement Officers) assigned to assist with maintaining a safe school environment. All exterior doors are secured and locked during the school day. Main office vestibules were constructed to limit direct entry into the school. All schools are equipped with 24/7 interior and exterior surveillance systems. Lockdown buttons are installed at all schools to initiate and expedite lockdown procedures. Portable radios are assigned to key personnel to expedite communications in the event of an emergency. In 2018 LRHSD was approved for a $3,438,000 security grant to enhance and develop new safety initiatives for all LRHSD schools that will begin in 2019.

The LRHSD has a variety of technology and STEM opportunities for students. A wide-range of technology courses offered include 3 year Television Broadcasting path with a 4th year option to intern in the District Television Studio. Technical courses expose students to industry-standard software. An Automotive shop at Seneca and Cherokee and a Metal Shop at Lenape High School. The LRHSD has also partnered with Project Lead the Way a nationally recognized STEM program to offer a pre-engineering pathway where students work collaboratively in a cohort to take an engineering elective each year of their high school experience. This will expose them to different facets of a STEM related career. The LRHSD has two district Robotics teams which compete locally and nationally. Members of the LRHSD Robotics teams report that the project based problem solving design of each challenge deepens their understanding of the concepts behind the designs necessary to compete with other schools.

More

Lenape High School takes pride in its outstanding academic success and relationship with the surrounding communities. Lenape students are known for not only their impressive test scores, but also for their kindness and respect. The high school’s administration holds their students to a higher level than most because they know exactly what each individual student is capable of, and that is success. With the help of a wonderful district, Lenape students can confidently walk through the doors knowing that they are receiving an exceptional education and building a strong foundation for their future. Lenape, along with the entire LRHSD, operates using a 57 minute class period, rotating schedule. The rotating schedule has an AM wheel and a PM wheel with a 50 minute community lunch and learn time in the middle. This schedule more closely mirrors what our students will experience in college, as classes rotate and drop off within a 4 day cycle. Our students utilize the community lunch and learn to seek assistance from their teachers, study with their peers, complete their independent work, meet with clubs, complete a variety of tasks that would otherwise interrupt instruction, or socialize with friends. It also provides our students the opportunity to further develop their time management skills. We our preparing our students to succeed in life after Lenape High School.
