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."

Summer Learning Opportunities
Medina City Schools is offering students entering grades 1st through 9th two summer learning opportunities - a more formal online course and on-your-own enrichment activities. We know the last few months of the school year resulted in an unexpected change in learning structure for students; therefore, the District will provide our school community with options to continue to engage in learning over the summer months.
Opportunity 1: Summer Learning Session
Cost: $30.00 per student
When: June 15, 2020-July 3, 2020
Participants: Open to students entering 1st through 9th grade in fall 2020
**** We need at least 15 students to register at each grade level in order to hold a class. If less than 15 students register, the class will be canceled and parents will receive a refund.
Medina City Schools teachers will provide students with learning experiences that focus on reading and math concepts. During the three week session, activities will be provided through Google Classroom and include a combination of scheduled sessions with a teacher and instructional material posted online. Reading focused activities will be facilitated on Mondays (reading lessons posted) and Tuesdays (small group learning sessions in reading); math activities will take place on Wednesdays (math lessons posted) and Thursdays (small group learning sessions in math). Daily activities provided should take students no more than 2 hours to complete.
Registration for the Summer Learning Session will close on Friday, June 5th at 4:00 pm.

Opportunity 2: Enrichment Activities
Enrichment learning activities will be available to all students on the main page of our Medina City Schools website. The STEM-based activities will include a combination of online experiences and ideas for activities that do not require technology. Activities are organized by Primary (Kindergarten-2nd grade), Intermediate (3rd-5th grade), and Middle School (6th- 8th grade) levels to help you and your child locate activities of interest. These activities will be posted by June 1.
Food Distribution for Medina City Schools' Families In Need
Food distribution will continue to those Medina City Schools' families in need at Medina High School in the west parking lot by the stadium at the B3 doors through June 30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:30 AM-1:00 PM. We are asking parents to drive up to the table and pick up the bags off of the table in an effort to maintain social distancing.
Parent/Student Survey Results: Online Learning
Recently, district parents and students were asked to take a survey with regard to the move to online learning. Below is a summary of the results of this survey. Click on the image below to view. Any questions should be directed to Tina Cassidy, Director of Instruction.

School Building Closures Extended Through June 30, 2020
ALL buildings will remain closed to the public per Governor DeWine's directive through June 30, 2020. This includes ALL District outdoor facilities.
Important Information: District Outdoor Facilities
With the increased restrictions implemented by Governor DeWine this week along with the extension of the stay-at-home order through May 1, we have made the decision to close ALL outdoor District facilities effective Monday, April 6, 2020 until further notice. This will include ALL District playgrounds, basketball courts, tennis courts, Ken Dukes Stadium, Memorial Stadium, and A.I. Root Stadium and track.
We appreciate your understanding during this time as we work to abide by the need for social distancing. Thank you for all you are doing to slow the spread.
Intradistrict Enrollment Option
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 2020-2021 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 Wednesday, April 1, 2020, at http://www.medinabees.org by clicking on the Student Registration tab in the green bar at the top of the website then click on the link to Intradistrict Open Enrollment. Requests will be accepted via online submission only from Wednesday, April 1, 2020, through Saturday, May 30, 2020, for the 2020-2021 school year. Parents will be notified in writing of their child’s acceptance/non-acceptance no later than the second week of August 2020. 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.
