Our High School Gymnasium is located West of our High School and is connected to the Lisbon Armory with both gyms used for our indoor sporting events. Our Outdoor Sports Complex including an eight-lane rubber track, long jump, pole vault, shot put, discus, football field, bleachers, and building including restrooms and concessions stand are located West of our High School Gymnasium. We also have a special education Learning center located just south of the middle school.

Our school’s transportation department has their terminal and shop located downtown Lisbon at 223 Main Street. All of our facilities are ADA compliant and have been completely remodeled over the past 7 years.
Our school district includes about 435 square miles of land. The school district operates on a $7.3 million dollar budget with 79% of our revenue coming from the State of North Dakota followed by 18% local property taxes for our revenue. Our 2015 mill levy included 60 mills general fund, 12 mills misc., 18 mills building fund, 2 mills asbestos bond levy and 3 mills special reserve. The Lisbon Public Schools cost per student is one of the lowest in the state at $8,572 per student, which is nearly $3,000 below the average of the 177 districts in North Dakota. It is our intent to create an environment in our schools that challenges every student to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to become successful. We are very proud of our students, staff, parents, and community.
Our mission is, “All students will learn, experience success and be good citizens.” Please take some time to explore our website and get to know our school. If you have questions or concerns, feel free to contact me.
