Superintendent's Office

Welcome to the Lake George Central School District, a community of caring professionals, a thoughtful Board of Education, outstanding students and engaged parents.  Our vision is to foster academic and personal excellence, responsibility and cultural awareness, we are dedicated to creating: 

  • An engaging and innovative learning environment for each student
  • A comprehensive K-12 instructional program using best practices
  • Student connections to extra-curricular opportunities
  • An appreciation for diversity and local traditions  

The quality education that students receive is a result of putting our students first. Counselors, teachers, administrators and staff frequently sacrifice personal time to work with students long after the school day ends. In this nurturing atmosphere, the students grow successful and confident in the ways that serve them throughout their lives.

The Lake George educational journey begins at the Elementary school with our unique open classroom structure and collaborative cross-grade level teams that devise challenging, creative and nurturing learning experiences. Student growth continues at the Jr.-Sr. High School where learning is organized to promote the greatest potential of each student. Classes included advanced placement, technology, Career Technical Education, art, music and business as well as a multitude of extra-curricular and enrichment activities.

Under the leadership of our Board of Education and Administrative team and with parental engagement we are personalizing opportunities that empower all students to be lifelong learners, leaders and global citizens.
