Catherine AukermanWelcome to the 2021-22 School Year ~

The Highland Local School District is a benchmark of educational excellence. Our students have access to the highest quality educational 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 our 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. 

As our county grows, so does the student body of the Highland Schools. Our District serves over 3,300 students representing seven townships from across 78 square miles in northeast Medina County. We are comprised of five schools – three elementary schools, one middle school and one high school. 

At the start of the 2021-22 school year, the District will complete the construction of its three new elementary schools and welcome students and staff to their new learning environment! Highland Middle School was renovated to include a new roof and an updated HVAC system, which includes air conditioning! 

The new Granger, Hinckley and Sharon elementary schools will meet the constantly evolving needs of teaching and learning in the 21st century and beyond. We believe that the design and physical structure of a school shape the development occurring within its walls -- and it is our mission to continue to inspire students, facilitate innovative learning and prepare students for a successful future. These new buildings will be safe and secure, timeless and inspire students, educators and community members alike.

Looking forward to a great school year!

Catherine Aukerman
Superintendent of Schools
