Welcome to the Mohawk Area School District.  Mohawk is an area based on rich traditions and people that have a deep affection for the district and community.   Mohawk has seen changes in the community and surrounding areas, and has always answered the call to provide quality educational programs to all students.  As Lawrence County has entered some difficult times, we must continually be progressive in our thought and action in order to put students in a position for success.

Success is defined differently by all individuals, students and adults.  Our goal at the district is to help each and every student identify interests and strengths and get the most out of them.  This is done through a variety of course offerings, state-of-the-art programs, and innovative instruction.  Technology is but one tool in our instructors’ employ, but it has provided a gateway to new learning experiences in the form of cyber classes, hybrid and flexible scheduling for students, and one-to-one technology in the high school.  Our one-to-one program is truly about personalizing instruction for each student as they make their way to post-secondary school or the workforce.  Our strong community and business partnerships have allowed us to communicate with potential employers and training facilitators to provide many learning opportunities beyond the district.  

Our commitment to the students does not end there.  The district greatly believes in our mission to educate and nurture the whole child.  Whether it be through counselor led Prevention classes in the elementary to a vibrant Student Assistance Program at the high school, the students’ well-being and happiness is of the utmost importance to the district.  Whether it is through fundraising or volunteering, caring about the community is modeled by the magnificent staff.  Several of our steering committees and advisory councils have stakeholders as members, confirming a commitment to communication and community responsiveness.  

Mohawk as a district wants every child to meet their full potential.  As a district, we are striving every day to meet and exceed expectations.  We welcome those that live here and those that may live here to join us in making Mohawk the best district it can be!
