LCHS was the fourth high school to open in Elk Grove, as the community transformed from a historically rural farming region to a culturally diverse, suburban community of the greater Sacramento area. The Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD) is the fifth-largest school district in California located in southern Sacramento County. EGUSD covers 320 square miles and includes 67 schools: 42 elementary schools, nine middle schools, nine high schools, four alternative education schools, one charter school, a special education school, an adult school, and a (K-8) virtual academy.
While EGUSD offers a multitude of educational programs, including over 40 career-themed academies and pathways within 14 industry sectors, LCHS is the only high school to offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme, both the Diploma Programme and the Middle Years Program (MYP), in the district. EGUSD prepares students for college and career by supporting them with the means to be creative problem solvers; self-aware, self-reliant, and self-disciplined; technically literate; effective communicators and collaborators; and engaged in the community as individuals with integrity. LCHS integrates rigorous academics with career-based learning and real-world workplace experiences and works to ensure that Every Student is Learning, in Every Classroom, in Every Subject, Every Day (E4), keeping with the district’s Graduate Profile, as well as the IB Learner Profile.
