A Spotlight on Olentangy Local Schools 

The ever evolving Olentangy Local School District is one of the most rapidly growing school districts in all of Ohio. Stretching from the commercialized and established parts of Franklin County all the way to the wide-open farm terrain in Delaware County, there’s a place for any type of home buyer in this school district. 

Olentangy covers nearly 95 square miles of land across central Ohio, and with sixteen elementary schools, five middle schools (soon to be six), and four high schools, it’s among the top five largest school districts in the state. As of May 2022, there were over 22,000 students enrolled across the district and these numbers are anticipated to continue to grow at a rapid pace. 

A Growing Community 

Olentangy is a rapidly growing community and the leaders of Olentangy Local Schools have worked tirelessly to meet the demands of this influx of new families and students. With a focus on opening new schools as needed, the district has been able to keep the individual building enrollment numbers low, allowing for a focus on the student-to-teacher ratio that allows for higher student achievement. 

The District’s efforts have resulted in remarkable success, including an A+ Overall Rating from Niche, a graduation rate of 98.9%, and over 87% of the district performing above the state-level expectations on standardized assessments according to the Ohio School Report Card. 

Individualized Learning 

Among the benefits of Olentangy Local Schools is the unparalleled opportunities, available to all students. OASIS, Olentangy Academy, and the Peer Mentorship Preschool Program are just a few of the notable academic programs the district has to offer for students of all ages. With a mission to “facilitate maximum learning for every student,” Olentangy Local Schools strives to design a learning path that’s completely individualized to each specific child, based on their own individual needs as a learner.
