Together, We Transform Lives Through Academics, Athletics and the Arts!
Boardman School District's Vision Statement encompasses more than 100 years of excellence in education. This year, Boardman High School is once again at the top of the list for the best Ohio High Schools in U.S. News and World Report. Boardman also tops the list of Best School Districts in the Mahoning Valley on the vigorous school ranking website, Niche.com. The district educates approximately 4,100 students across 6 school buildings. To ensure that all students have access to the quality education that Boardman provides, we strictly adhere to Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) principles in all of our buildings.
Our three neighborhood elementary schools (K-3) are aligned under the same reading, writing, and math curriculum to ensure a smooth transition into our middle school and 4th grade. Elementary families enjoy Literacy and Math Nights for parents and students, Mentorship Programs that pair our youngsters with High School role models, and vast opportunities to get involved in community and school activities including STEAM programs , Music and Art. Two of our Elementary Schools have been awarded the prestigious National Blue Ribbon School Award, Stadium Drive in 2018, and West Boulevard is a rare two-time National Blue Ribbon School Award Winner in 2011 and again in 2020.
Boardman Center Intermediate School (4-5-6) partners with the community to provide extra supports for students, as well as creating a positive and uplifting learning environment. BCIS created a new Sensory Room in the Spring of 2021, to provide an engaging space for special needs students as well as a safe space for all students who may struggle with behavioral or mental health issues. A collaboration with Second Harvest Food Bank and the Boardman Lions Club helped establish a daily school food pantry, the first of its kind in the Mahoning Valley. Students are engaged, and taught to be socially aware and responsive to others' needs. They participate in a variety of athletic, artistic and academic opportunities.
Boardman Glenwood Jr. High(7-8) has received more than $60,000 in Federal and State grants since 2015 for extensive science, physical fitness, and general educational programs. Some of these include hydroponics for plant studies, aquaponics for ecosystem studies, weather balloon for atmospheric studies, wind turbine kits and an Industrial Compost System (EPA funded) to reduce cafeteria waste by 35% and turn it into compost for the Certified National Wildlife Habitat maintained by students in the school's courtyard.
