I like the small community and that everyone looks out for one another. The support of our local community with academics, sports and other various activities is AMAZING!
Firelands Local School District is a very welcoming place. All the teachers love their jobs and they all want each student to excel in the things they love. Our music program is outstanding and every year we score ones in district and omea competitions. Our school is pretty small so you become very close with your class and even the grades above or below you. Our close knit county school is a great place to learn and live.
