Superintendent’s Message

Loveland Tiger Families,

With about 4,500 students and hundreds of staff members, it’s impossible for me to know every great thing that’s going on in our buildings – but thankfully, I have YOU to let me know when there’s someone who should be celebrated.

On Monday, I got an email from Brianna Lardie, one of our parents at Loveland Primary, to give a few staff members a #beLOVEland shout-out. Here’s part of her message:

“My son, Axel who is in Mrs. Cooper’s first-grade class, was greeted by his AWESOME teacher and aide (Mrs. Howard) with shirts they had made for World Down Syndrome Day. They had their mismatching socks on too, we wear the socks to bring awareness to Down syndrome and the extra 21 chromosome people with Down syndrome have.

When Axel was a baby I was so nervous about where he would go to school because of horror stories I read about online about other schools all over the country. Axel has thrived every day in Loveland schools. We are so blessed by all the teachers he has had.

Mrs. Cooper and Mrs. Howard have become “his people”. They are truly amazing with Axel and we are so blessed by them.”

We launched our #beLOVEland campaign to recognize the connection between our students, families, and staff – and that is at the heart of what we do. It’s truly what makes Loveland a special place. Anytime you have a question, a concern, or just want to celebrate someone, send an email my way:

I hope you have a happy, safe, and relaxing Spring Break. We’ll see our students back here on Monday, April 4.

Good luck to our Loveland Show Choirs as they compete in Show Choir Nationals in Nashville this weekend!

Go Tigers!

Mike Broadwater,

Loveland Provides Great Return on Educational Investment

Loveland City School District provides one of the best educational values for students and families in the state of Ohio. Taxpayers in the district get a great return on investment by supporting Loveland City Schools.

The district’s performance index is above the state average, while our per-student spending is below the state average. The Performance Index measures the achievement of every student and is standardized across the state of Ohio. You can learn more about the Performance Index by following this link to the Ohio Department of Education’s website.

Our student performance index is very similar to Forest Hills, but our per-student costs are lower. Wyoming City Schools also have a comparable performance index score, but their per-student costs are significantly higher.

The district remains focused on providing academic excellence for students and developing real-world skills to make them successful in life, while also being fiscally responsible. There is no district in Hamilton County that performs as well as Loveland City Schools while spending as little per student as we spend.

The data provided comes from Comparative Analytics, a tool that pulls data from school report cards and annual financial reports. If you have any questions or want additional details, please contact Superintendent Mike Broadwater at

LHS Marks Hope Week

This week was Hope Week at Loveland High School. Hope Week supports Hope Squad, our school-based peer support team. Students were greeted on Monday with messages of support and encouragement around the building. On Wednesday therapy dogs were on campus to spend time with students during lunch. Thursday it was high school recess day, with students having fun in a balloon pit. It’s a great opportunity for students to de-stress ahead of spring break!

Loveland Welcomes Lawmakers

Loveland City School District has been fortunate enough to welcome several local lawmakers over the past few weeks.


US Congressman Steve Chabot, who represents the 1st District of Ohio visited Loveland Middle School, touring classrooms and chatting with students.


Representative Jessica Miranda, who represents District 28 in the Ohio House got a chance to see our Loveland Primary School and Elementary School campuses.


Representative Tom Brinkman, who represents District 27 in the Ohio House spoke to government classes at Loveland High School.


Each one of these visits was an opportunity for our elected leaders to see first-hand the work that is going on inside our Loveland City Schools, and spend some time with our students. Superintendent Mike Broadwater looks forward to continuing to build relationships with each of them and working together to make sure our students are successful.


We will continue to welcome lawmakers in the weeks ahead as part of the Buckeye Association of School Administrators (BASA) Hearts and Souls Project, which aims to put a face on the students of Ohio’s public schools and the educators who work tirelessly to serve them.

Science Day Celebration at LIS!

Thursday was Science Day at Loveland Intermediate School. More than 2 dozen presenters spoke with our students about all kinds of science-related careers and hobbies. From learning about radar technology, to a presentation by Loveland Robotics, to spending time with search and rescue dogs – this was a great opportunity for our students to see real-world applications of classroom lessons. Thank you to the M/INT PTSA for making it happen, and thank you to the community members who spent time investing in our kids!
