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.
The Intradistrict Enrollment Option is 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 2023-2024 school year. This option is based on enrollment numbers, space, and staff availability. Class assignments are made only to those grades that are at the District class size less one.
Intradistrict Enrollment requests will be accepted on the Medina City Schools website beginning at midnight Saturday, April 1, 2023. To view the Intradistrict Enrollment form, click here or visit the Student Registration tab in the green bar at the top of the website, then to the link to Intradistrict Enrollment. Requests will be accepted via online submission only from midnight Saturday, April 1, 2023, through Thursday, May 25, 2023, for the 2023-2024 school year. Parents will be notified in writing of their child’s acceptance/non-acceptance no later than the second week of August 2023. 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.
