The History of Medina Schools

The History of Medina City Schools Book to Benefit Medina City Schools Foundation

As the Medina City School District and the City of Medina prepare to celebrate their bicentennial in 2017, local author and historian, Gloria Brown, has compiled a history of the Medina City Schools that will walk you through the beginning of the district with the first one-room schoolhouse in 1817 to the present.  “What we have here is a very personal account of the history of the schools,” said Gloria Brown. 

The book entitled The Story of Medina’s Schools:  1817-2017 was published with the generous help of Murray and Sue Van Epp, Sigel Press and the Medina City Schools Foundation.  The soft-covered book retails for $19.95 and is available at the Medina City Schools Board of Education Office located at 739 Weymouth Road.  They are also available at Cool Beans, the Medina County Visitors Bureau on Medina's historic square and Root Candles in their retail store located at 623 W. Liberty Street in Medina.  All proceeds from the sale of the books will go to benefit the Medina City Schools Foundation.
