Brunswick City School

District is home to approximately 7,200 students ranging from preschool to grade 12. More than 800 employees, including teachers, bus drivers, secretaries, custodians, food service, maintenance workers, and administrators, help serve our students every day. We are the largest school district in Medina County and the second-largest employer. It is an exciting time for the Brunswick City School District! While not a traditional start to the school year, we are excited to have our students back in our buildings! We opened the doors to our brand new, state-of-the-art Middle School for 6th and 7th graders on October 12th. On November 9th, construction on the 8th-grade wing will be complete, and all our middle school students will be under one roof! There has been much to celebrate this past year! The Brunswick High School Marching Blue Devils kicked off 2020 marching in London on New Year's Day. In the Spring, Brunswick High School Language Arts teacher Kristin Perrin was recognized by the Medina County Educational Services Center as the Medina County Homer B. Simpson Teacher of the Year. Memorial Elementary School Principal Kati Mann, and Kidder Elementary School Principal Bonnie Kubec, also earned the Principal of the Year's distinction by the Ohio Association of Elementary School Administrators (OAESA). OAESA also recognized Crestview Elementary School as a "Hall of Fame School." At the September 21st Board of Education meeting, Kim Goessler took the Oath of Office as our newest Board Member. In addition, a representative from the State Auditor's Office presented our Treasurer, Mark Pepera, with the "Auditor of State Award." This award recognizes public organizations that complete a "clean audit" and meet several other rigorous financial standards. Earning this award places BCSD in the top 8% of all audited organizations.
