Pwogram yo

The Lima City Schools offers an extensive art and music program, with opportunities for students at all grade levels. Even our youngest of students have opportunities to get involved, including through the Liberty Touring Company and many other elementary and middle school ensembles.


The district also offers the only full orchestra program for fourth through 12th-graders in Northwest Ohio. Lima Senior High School students have 12 music groups (choirs, bands and orchestras) to choose from.

Students in all grades have art opportunities with student work often displayed in the community and used to spark dialogue on important issues. Artist-in-residence programs are common place in the Lima City Schools.

The district also offers two kindergarten through eighth-grade magnet programs. Liberty houses an arts magnet and South houses a science and technology magnet. Both schools are open to all students and are under the lottery process for entry.

Anyone interested in touring the schools or have questions about the integrated learning style should contract Kristin Lee, director of the magnet programs, at 419-996-3434 or

Arts Eman

The kindergarten through eighth-grade arts magnet program focuses on art, dance, drama and music as the center of an integrated curriculum. This means the arts are woven into all subjects, often with an “artist in residence” or exciting themes. Students in all grades experience art, drama, dance and music daily with highly qualified staff.

What kind of student succeeds in the Arts Magnet Program? 

This program can be demanding of students because it is very exciting and full of hands-on learning. The school day moves very rapidly. Qualities of successful Arts Magnet students include:

  • The ability to work independently; to initiate learning

  • The ability to be self-disciplined and motivated

  • Parents who are supportive of this type of education. We encourage parents to be volunteers and be active in our academically successful Arts Magnet.

Once a child has been accepted into the program, he or she does not have to reapply each year.
