Lehman High School was a public high school in the Canton City School District. It was named for John House Lehman, "in honor of his extensive, untiring, and unselfish efforts for the public school system."[2]


Lehman was built on the site of the original North High School in 1920 and served as a junior high until 1932, when it started to add grades above 9th grade. The first class graduated in 1938.

The Lehman Polar Bears were members of the Hall of Fame Conference for football.[3]

Due to low enrollment, Lehman and Lincoln High School were closed as traditional high schools at the end of the 1975-76 school year and became junior highs. A new Lehman Middle School was opened in 2004 on 13th St. and Broad Ave. NW, leaving the original building empty ever since.
