The Elyria City School district is a school district located in Elyria, Ohio. It consists of 1 high school, 3 junior high schools, 9 elementary schools, and 3 specialized schools. The Elyria City Schools maintains all public education and buildings.


By 2014 a gay-straight alliance appeared at Elyria High School. As a result, a group of parents in the school district are threatening to reject an item for the May 2014 voting ballot, a renewal levy. Chris Sito, a parent of students at the school, accused the club as being "a sex club".[1]

In November 2016, residents of Elyria passed Issue 23, an unprecedented school bond issue valued at $140 million with the goal of rebuilding all of the districts schools (excluding Elyria High School) as well as building a state-of-the-art athletic complex on the city's south side to replace the decaying Ely Stadium, which was built in 1927.
