Welcome to the Lima City Schools. Let me first thank you for choosing us. I know there are many educational options available to families. We want the chance to educate every child because we know every child has potential. And we want to be the school district that helps each find success.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with our district, let me share just a few of the many highlights. They start with our amazing staff and diverse families, all striving and working together to make sure our students’ needs are met and that they are prepared for the future.
