We extend our sincere sympathies to his family during this difficult time.

Teachers, school counselors and administrators are here to help you in any way that we can. School counselors and mental health specialist will be available at the high school throughout the week to provide support for any student or teacher in need. If support is needed over the long weekend, please contact the Franklin County Crisis Line at (614) 722-1800.

[05/27/18]   Congratulations Class of 2018!

You are 638 seniors strong - best wishes on whatever your next endeavor is. Find success - as only you define success - in whatever path you choose.

[05/24/18]   Superintendent Barrett announced today that Principal Dodd will be leaving the district to become the principal of William Mason High School (Mason, Ohio).

Over the years, Principal Dodd has been an honest and open administrator, always willing to answer parent questions of any nature and address rumors. He has been a strong leader for the high school and the national recognition of our many programs is a strong reflection of what a great asset he was to the high school and district.

Principal Dodd will be missed - do drop him a note in the next few days thanking him for his service.

Best wishes and good luck to Principal Dodd!
