High Quality Education at Amherst Schools Comets Shoot for Academic Excellence For the second year in a row, we’re proud to say no Lorain County district earned more A’s and B’s on the state report card than Amherst Schools. We met all 24 performance indicators and had the highest overall valued-added ranking in the county. Comets were recognized statewide in cross country and track, culinary arts, theatre, and TV production. We also had two National Merit Semifinalists, and Amherst Junior High was nominated for National Blue Ribbon Status. Best of all, the Class of 2015 earned more than $3.2 million in academic scholarships! Adding tuition-free, all-day kindergarten, new high school electives, a middle school strings program, and Comet College Campus options will help us continue to grow and excel.

Integrated Technology Comes to Amherst Schools
Steve Sayers, Superintendent
After investing in learning technology, Amherst Schools staff and students are now able to do things that never would have been thought possible just a few years ago. New learning technology helped Mrs. Stephanie Boggs’ 5th graders use Google Docs to practice working in groups, a critical skill in college and in the workplace. New technology helped other teachers fit lesson plans with different learning styles and track student growth. Check out more examples on The Official YouTube Channel of Amherst EVSD!
Amherst Schools in Best Financial Position in 15 Years and May Become More Stable The Amherst Schools may be in their best financial state since 2000. If there are no state budget cuts and our renewal levy passes in 2017, Amherst Schools will be financially stable with a cash balance through at least the 2018-2019 school year. We’re grateful to committed staff and administrators who sacrificed to make this possible. We also offer this high quality education at a great value to taxpayers. A
