Education

You can tell a great deal about a place by the investment it makes in its children and their education. Cridersville has always made learning an important priority.

As a partner community in the Wapakoneta School District, our children have modern school facilities with the latest technology and opportunities in the arts, music, and athletics. The Wapakoneta School District encompasses 159 square miles and includes the City of Wapakoneta and Cridersville. Five facilities - one high school (8-12), one middle school (5-7), and three elementaries (PK-4) - serve the district's 3,074 students.

The school district maintains a 20 to 1 student-teacher ratio. Our high school graduation rate is 92.5% and our overall student attentance rate is 96.1%. These statistics attest to the quality of our students and school staff. We believe they say much about our families too. Our students learn about hard work and excellence at home. Our families value education and are partners with our schools. This dedication to excellence is apparent in the classroom, the concert hall, the athletic field, and ultimately the work place.

Currently, our school district is investing $65 million for a new elementary school in Cridersville. Our local elementary has been recognized as both an Ohio Hall of Fame School and twice as an Ohio School of Promise. The staff is excellent.
