Highland Schools: A Legacy of Excellence
"Highland Local School District is a benchmark of educational excellence. Their students have access to the highest quality programs, a full complement of both curricular and extra-curricular offerings and an experienced instructional staff – all of which are the envy of school districts across the State. Highland continues to be a leader in education where their vision, mission and goals have created both the foundation and framework that continues to promote a culture of high performance – academically, athletically and within all areas of the fine and performing arts. They have been rated “Excellent” by the Ohio Department of Education for the past 12 years. The State awarded Highland with the designation of “Excellent with Distinction” in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2012, which is Ohio’s highest rating. As our county grows, so does the student body of the Highland Schools. Their District now serves more than 3,200 students representing seven townships from across 78 square miles in northeast Medina County. They are comprised of five schools – three elementary schools, one middle school and one high school.
