West Lauderdale High School Home


Welcome to West Lauderdale High

We will educate all students so they can become competent contributing members of society.
Lauderdale County Schools is committed to meeting the needs of all the students we serve, as we prepare them to be productive, contributing members of our community. In this pursuit, we know that students must have a passion or a desire for something – whether it’s academics, sports, or the arts. This passion is the driving force that gives them one reason to come to school, and thus, they are more likely to experience success.
