Principal's Message


Go Warriors!

I am honored to be a member of the Warrior Nation, a team comprised of all LFO Warriors, both past and present, and privileged to serve as principal of LFO High School. LFO High School has a 5-star climate rating, which is the state of Georgia’s highest available ranking! This school climate rating is based on academics, behavior, surveys, and attendance. Our CCRPI Scores indicate that we have outpaced the district and state in academic growth, and have achieved the highest graduation rate in our school's history! We have won 9 Academic Decathlon STATE Championships. Last year, LFO won the Region 6AAA Boy’s Basketball Championship, and hosted our first state playoff game in school history! There has never been a better time to be a Warrior!

There is a popular acronym for the word team that showcases my philosophy regarding education and LFO High School:  Together, Everyone Achieves More.  Unlike a group, a team has a common mission. The Warrior Nation is a TEAM comprised of phenomenal students, parents, and educators, and our common goal is the safety and success of LFO's students.  Being a part of the Warrior Nation is a special privilege; it means you belong here and you are a part of something greater than yourself.  The next time you see a fellow Warrior, you can proudly say, "Feathers up," and know that you share something that only a Warrior can understand and something that will identify you as part of the TRIBE who supports and encourages each member to be his or her best in everything. Feathers up!  -Chance
