Welcome to the Cocalico School District!

We are very excited to share with you the many good things that are happening here in the school district. We offer a wide range of academic programs and supports as well as a great variety of extracurricular activities. We have received many accolades for the programs we offer. These recognitions have come in many forms.

First, we have been recognized with a Silver Award by the U.S. News & World Report for several consecutive years. We have been listed on the Advanced Placement (AP) Honor Roll many times. And, we have been noted for our students’ participation and achievements on the Certification National Occupational Competency Testing Institute (NOCTI) at the conclusion of their career and technical education provided by the Lancaster County Career and Technical Center.

In addition to these external recognitions, our students frequently comment about the outstanding professionals that have provided their education. Teachers, counselors, and administrators have all been described as caring, personal, helpful, and engaging. Students report feeling safe and supported throughout their years in the Cocalico School District. After beginning their college programs and their first jobs, they frequently comment that the district prepared them well, and that they have enjoyed many successes in their endeavors beyond high school.

Finally, we enjoy a great deal of recognition and support from parents. They express deep appreciation for the educational experiences we are providing to their children. They partner with us to help with homework, volunteer in the classroom, organize booster clubs, and so much more. The words and actions of our Cocalico families inspire and enable us to continually improve the quality of our programs.

As you explore the pages of this website, we hope that you, too, are inspired by what we offer here. The Cocalico School District is a fine example of public education, and we are proud to be a part of something so special and purposeful. We believe in our mission to inspire and support learning for every child, every chance, every day. We know that if we carry this out to the best of our ability, we will realize our vision of empowering all students to achieve their fullest potential.

Warmest regards,


Ella H. Musser, Ed. D.
