Loveland City Schools Vision
The focus of Loveland Schools is academic performance. Loveland students perform at the highest level academically as recognized by experts and by the community. Student learning is centered on the Ohio proficiency test subject areas with mastery demonstrated by a 90% passing rate in each area. Allocation of available resources is directed toward improving student academic performance.
Students are affirmed and challenged to perform their best in a positive, respectful environment. Success is achieved when each student’s abilities and needs are determined and met. Student success is the primary responsibility of all staff.
Schools are highly flexible in meeting the learning needs of the school-age population and in providing expanded opportunities for the entire community. Programs are not constrained by traditional time factors and facilities. Technology is fully utilized and serves as a resource to expand both time and facilities.
