Central Ohio is now the second largest Midwest city, and we have a list of public school districts to prove it! No matter what kind of school or focus you’re looking for, you’ll find a district here that’s just right for you. Below, please find the current list of schools, with contact information and links to websites where available.

Want to compare apples to apples? The Ohio Department of Education publishes a report card for every public school district and every individual public school within each district. From spending to performance, there’s a wealth of great information in those reports. And since every school is graded on the same scale on the same issues and data, it’s easier for parents to compare. The reports are even printable!

It’s not all about the numbers, though. Visit the school’s website and browse a little to see what the culture is like and it fits your family. Once you’ve narrowed down your choices, you may want to call to set up a visit in a few of the schools and get an even better feel for the place your child may spend quite a few years. Good luck on your hunt for the right school for your child!
