My overall education with the Findlay City Schools district was good in some aspects but lacking in others. Some of the faculty were great. The teachers were helpful and attentive. But the administration was severely lacking in competence. Many of the problems associated with Findlay City Schools comes from the lack of administrative quality. Before I attended high school, I didn't realize how poor the administration was at handling problems like bullying, cutting teachers salaries because of technicalities, and preparing students for graduation. Other than administration, my education was filled with variety. I really liked the options Findlay City Schools had to offer like accelerated courses, a great music program, athletics and clubs.

I enjoyed most of the teachers in the school district. The majority of the teachers wanted the students to succeed and to learn. Throughout middle school and high school as the course work increased and became more challenging, I felt very comfortable asking questions when I didn't understand something. The learning environment for me was perfect. The district also provided great learning opportunities throughout my high school years. There is a mentorship program that was created by the head of the gifted services department. Thanks to the program, I was able to figure out what branch of the medical field I wanted to pursue. One thing I did not like about the district was the unfairness shown to the teachers of the former middle school, Central. At Donnell Middle School, they were not welcomed with open arms and that really destroyed some passion that teachers had. However, the teachers from Central that ended up at Glenwood Middle School were treated with a higher level of respect.
Findlay City Schools has a great number of opportunities available to its students. It is similar to private schools in its available extracurricular activities as well, with superior-rated show choir, band, and orchestra programs. Their sports programs are a part of the TRAC athletic conference, a Division I conference in northwest Ohio. Academically, their students can choose to take a wide variety of courses, from AP and CP courses to technical skill classes. The teachers care for their students and their progress and goals. Findlay City Schools helped prepare me well for my college and graduate school paths and have helped lay a firm foundation for many other students as well.
