The Ravenna School District, formally the Ravenna City School District, is a public school district located in Ravenna, Ohio, United States. The district serves students in preschool through 12th grade living in Ravenna and Ravenna Township, and small portions of Shalersville and Charlestown townships.


  • Ravenna High School, grades 9–12
  • Brown Middle School, grades 6–8
  • Carlin Elementary School, grades 1–5
  • West Main Elementary School, grades 1–5
  • Willyard Elementary School, grades 1–5
  • West Park Elementary School, kindergarten
  • Early Childhood Education, preschool

The district organization was adopted in February 1997 and implemented at the beginning of the 1997–98 school year. Prior to 1997, students in grades K–5 attended one of five neighborhood elementary schools, grades 6–8 were at Brown Middle School, and grades 9–12 at Ravenna High School. The changes in 1997 moved all kindergarten students to West Park Elementary School, and all fifth and sixth grade students to Rausch Intermediate School, adjacent to Brown Middle School, which became a school for grades seven and eight. Students who had previously attended West Park were split between Carlin and West Main Elementary Schools. This organization stayed in place until 2008 when Rausch Intermediate closed, necessitating the return of students in grade five to their neighborhood elementary school and grade six to Brown Middle School. When Tappan Elementary closed in 2013, students were sent to one of the three remaining elementary schools with most being assigned to West Main.[2][3]
