The district operates the following schools.

  • Wapakoneta High School
  • Wapakoneta Middle School
  • Wapakoneta Elementary School, Wapakoneta
  • Cridersville Elementary School, Cridersville

The district previously operated Blume High School in Wapakoneta. After Wapakoneta High School opened in 1959, the Blume building was used as a junior high school until it was closed in 1990.[1]

After qualifying for an OSFC grant, Wapakoneta City Schools constructed two new elementaries. This brought the closing of Northridge Elementary, Centennial Elementary and the original Cridersville school (most recently an elementary). The building project also included the construction of a performing arts center to the existing Wapakoneta High School.
