Superintendent's Message

Thank you for your interest in the Galion City School District.  We proudly serve approximately 2000 students from preschool through graduation. We offer students a broad range of academic and extra-curricular opportunities that focus on college and career readiness.

Our district has made a strong commitment to expanding student access to learning through 21st Century tools. Specifically, we are implementing a One-to-One Technology Program in grades 3-12. Students in grades 3-8 have access to an iPad and students in grades 9-12 have a laptop computer. Students may use these devices 24 hours day / 7  days a week to access digital content, educational software, personal productivity, and communication tools.

Our Board of Education, administration, teaching staff, and support staff are focused on enhancing student achievement. Through the Race to the Top initiative and the Ohio Improvement Process, we will continue to evaluate our educational program and make data-based decisions to meet student needs.  Our goal is to insure that every student has a positive, successful educational experience. 

Whether you are new to our school district or have been in Galion for many years, we encourage you to be active in the education of our students. Join a parent or community organization or simply embrace the idea that a 21st century education opens the doors to unlimited possibilities.  My office is here to help you so please call or email if you have any questions.  Together, we will continue to inspire excellent academic achievement.

If you wish to contact me regarding any matter that is important to you, please email me at grubbs.james@galionschools.org or call at 419-468-3432 ext. 11001.

Superintendent Jim Grubbs
