A Message from the Superintendent

Welcome to the Medina City School District.  We believe in excellence, strong sense of community and tradition --- this is all achieved with a supportive and involved community.  As a result, the Medina City Schools has achieved the rating of 'Excellent' from the State of Ohio for multiple years.

Our community strives to provide many opportunities for its children from academics to athletics, the performing and fine arts and community service.  For these reasons and more you will find that the community and the school district go the extra mile when it comes to the children.  Musically, Medina City Schools truly excels beyond expectations.  Regularly, our performing arts programs are recognized for their outstanding performances.  We are one of a few school districts in Ohio to have choir, band and orchestra achieving at the highest level in the state year after year.  As a result, you will find that 'superior' ratings at state level competitions occur frequently for all three groups.  We offer 23 varsity level interscholastic sports at Medina High School and pride ourselves in the high degree of sportsmanlike conduct and competitiveness that our students experience.

You will find that the Medina City School District employees are some of the best educators in Ohio.  We provide many opportunities for professional development focused on keeping everyone on the cutting edge when it comes to understanding and implementing the best instructional strategies and practices.

All of the great programs and accomplishments I have mentioned would not be possible without the ongoing support of our community and the Board of Education.  We are very proud to have such a professional and student-centered group of individuals representing the schools and the community.  Their commitment toward doing what is best for children and the community is second to none.

Working together we can assure that our children are afforded many opportunities and an outstanding educational experience.  A community, such as Medina, valuing education and its children will always be vibrant and alive.

Go Bees!
