Catherine AukermanWelcome to the 2022-23 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 promotes 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 now serves close to 3,500 students representing seven townships across 78 square miles in northeast Medina County. We are comprised of five schools – three elementary schools, one middle school and one high school.

Last year, we welcomed elementary students and staff to new school buildings, and they embraced their new learning environment with open arms. All of our schools are now equipped with state-of-the-art heating and cooling systems (HVAC), upgraded safety and security features, updated technology and adequate classroom space so that our students can continue to be inspired to learn, grow and succeed! Our new elementary schools are now part of the Highland landscape that will help our staff facilitate innovative learning and prepare students for a successful future. 

Despite the challenges our District has faced due to the pandemic, we have maintained our focus, adapted to unexpected changes and pressed onward and upward. I am proud of Highland’s rich tradition of excellence. I hope you are, too.

Wishing everyone a successful 2022-23 year of learning!
