About the Medina City Schools

















The Medina City School District is home of the "Battling Bees."  The district encompasses 52 square miles including the city of Medina, Medina and Montville townships and a portion of Lafayette Township.  Located in close proximity to Cleveland and Akron and situated near Interstate Highways I-71, I-77 and I-76.  The picturesque city is best known for its historic small-town Victorian architecture.  Looks can be deceiving though.  Medina is a very progressive and future-oriented community.

Current enrollment is over 7800.  Facilities include seven elementary schools:  Ella Canavan, Garfield, Heritage, H. G. Blake, Sidney Fenn, Eliza Northrop, and Ralph E. Waite; two middle schools:  A. I. Root and Claggett; and one high school, Medina High School.

The school district is committed to expanded learning opportunities for students.  This ranges from consulting teachers in the elementary and middle schools working with students and teachers, to the integration of technology into the curriculum, to staff training and development.

Medina students excel in a variety of academic and co-curricular areas, including National Merit Scholarship finalists, multiple sports championships, and a music program with a reputation for excellence.
