Excellent STEM school district that is focused on education. You only get out of the education what you put into it. Staff and teaching is great for those that want to put in the effort. Sports are okay not a school district that concentrates on being the top in the area, but great coaching staffs are in place that will teach the students about pride, working together, and giving it all they have. Mad River School District has a great "Family" culture.

Overall, I have had a very positive experience with Mad River Local Schools. The teachers are very helpful and are always willing to provide extra help after school if needed. Mad River's facilities and resources are outstanding. The broad range of career tech programs offered at Stebbins High School give students the opportunity to dive into their fields of interest. The school district is very safe and has a great administration.
One change I would like to see happen in the district is the addition of more extracurricular activities, especially at Stebbins High School. Students would benefit from the opportunity to participate in activities like Debate Team, Model UN, and a Creative Writing Club. Another thing that would benefit students of Stebbins High School would be to offer more AP Courses.
All 3 of my daughters attended Mad River Elementary schools (Virginia Stevenson). We truly liked the atmosphere and our daughters loved their experiences there! Highly recommend.
