About Us

Lockland Local School District is located in the Village of Lockland, a small and diverse community located just north of Cincinnati, Ohio. The district serves an average of 550 students in grades K-12 residing in the villages of Lockland and Arlington Heights, OH as well as from surrounding communities through open enrollment.

Founded in 1851, Lockland Local School District is one of the oldest school districts in Ohio. Over the past 170 years, Lockland has graduated students who became world-renowned doctors, lawyers, educators, first responders, elected leaders, and military heroes. Our graduates include the first African-American Navy Seal, scientists who developed life-saving medications, authors of stories for several Academy Award-nominated movies, professional performers, and many others who enjoyed successful careers as professional athletes.

Lockland has fielded several state championship teams and athletes and sent countless students to college on academic and athletic scholarships.
