Congratulations are in order for the entire district as they received the results of the 2021-2022 Ohio School Report Card showing they earned a 5-star rating in every category. Congratulations are also due the four LHS seniors notified during the week they are National Merit Semifinalists. Allyson Colegate, Broderick Merz, Carmen Noe, and Evan Osgood all received notice of the honor.  The honor is earned by students through outstanding performance on standardized college entrance exams. Across the nation, less than 1% of high school seniors receive this honor. Colegate, Merz, Noe and Osgood are now in the running for National Merit college scholarships.


The district is very excited for the student’s opportunity to earn National Merit college scholarships. There was a lot to be excited about for LCSD staff, students and leadership when you add the news of the 5-star report card.

“This is a tremendous achievement for Loveland City School District, and a testament to the hard work of our students and their families, and the outstanding support offered by our outstanding staff,” – Mike Broadwater, LCSD Superintendent

Here is the text of the announcement released by LCSD Friday, September 16:

Loveland City School District earned five stars in every component of the Ohio School Report Card, including Achievement, Early Literacy, Gap Closing, Graduation Rate, and Progress. Loveland City School District is only one of 12 districts across the state of Ohio to earn all five-star ratings, placing the district in the top 2% in Ohio.

“Two goals of our #beLOVEland Strategic Vision are student success and fiscal responsibility,” Broadwater said. “Being able to achieve at a high level while keeping a close eye on the bottom line is further evidence that we are delivering a fantastic educational value for our Loveland City Schools community. We look forward to their continuing support.”
