    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."

  • Intradistrict Open Enrollment Option for the 2019-2020 school year opens APRIL 1, 2019  

    The Intradistrict Open Enrollment Option will be available to all Medina City Schools’ students who wish to attend an elementary or middle school other than the one they are assigned within the School District during the 2019-2020 school year.  This option is based on enrollment numbers, as well as space and staff availability. Class assignments are made only to those grades that are at the District class size less one.

     

    Intradistrict Open Enrollment requests will be available on the Medina City Schools website on Monday, April 1, 2019, at http://www.medinabees.org  (go to Departments in the top toolbar and click on Student Registration then on the left side of the screen click on the link to 2019-2020 Intradistrict Open Enrollment Form).  Requests will be accepted via online submission only from Monday, April 1, 2019, through Friday, May 31, 2019, for the 2019-2020 school year. Parents will be notified in writing of their child’s acceptance/non-acceptance no later than the second week of August 2019. Assignments may be revoked in reverse order of date received (last in, first out) if enrollment figures no longer allow for additional classroom space.

     

    Parents whose children are approved for this Intradistrict Open Enrollment Option are responsible for transporting their own children to and from the school.

     

    As a matter of information, Medina City Schools does not allow students from other school districts to enroll in the Medina City School District under the Intradistrict Open Enrollment Option.  However, Medina City Schools does allow students to leave the District to attend another district.

Calamity Days Remaining: 2018-2019 School Year

  • Per Ohio Revised Code, the State requires students to attend a minimum number of hours depending upon their grade level.  Based upon these calculations, the District has allotted the equivalent of 7 calamity days for the 2018-19 school year.

    This year, some of the buildings have exhausted more days than others due to various circumstances. Below are the current number of days remaining by building as of February 19, 2019.  This information will also be available on the District’s website at www.medinabees.org.
