Welcome to Medina City Schools
Home of the Battling Bees
The Medina City School District encompasses approximately 52 square miles which includes the City of Medina and Montville, Medina and a portion of Lafayette Townships. The district has seven elementary buildings, two middle schools, and one high school.
Utilizing a collaborative approach, we are able to provide outstanding academics and extracurricular activities to our students in an effort to ensure that our students receive a well-rounded education. We are a district which consists of community schools where all members play an important role in the development of our students.
Our ultimate goal is not just graduation but providing students with the necessary skills to be good citizens and successful adults as they navigate through life. It is important to instill good moral values and character that reflect the pride and expectations of our community.
Medina City Schools strives to meet the needs of "Every Student, Every Day."

The transition to kindergarten is an important milestone for your child and family. The staff from Medina City Schools looks forward to joining you on this journey. Our elementary principals and kindergarten teachers wanted to provide you with resources and ideas that you can incorporate into your everyday routines to continue to support your child as they prepare to start kindergarten. Every week we will share a Getting Ready for Kindergarten tip and accompanying video to continue to strengthen the skills for school readiness. We look forward to welcoming your child to our Medina City Schools Community. To view video tips, resources and other important information as you prepare your student for kindergarten, visit our webpage by clicking on the image below.
