The West Clermont Local School District (WCLSD) is a public school district in Clermont County, Ohio, United States. It covers a 54-square-mile (140 km2) area on the east side of the Cincinnati, Ohio metropolitan area, centered on the I-275 loop. The district serves the village of Amelia and some of Union Township, as well as portions of Batavia, Monroe, Ohio and Pierce Townships.

The West Clermont Local School District is the 23rd largest of Ohio's 610 school districts,[2] with 8500 students, grades Pre-K-12, with 453 certified staff members and 260 support personnel.[3] The district has eight elementary schools, two middle schools, and two high schools.

In 2002, the WCLSD received a $500,000 grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to help it restructure its high schools into ten smaller schools.[citation needed]

High schools[edit]

WCLSD includes two high schools, both of which were at one time split into a variety of small schools that focused on areas of expertise or interest. Amelia High School was composed of the following small schools: Math and Science Technology Academy, International Baccalaureate, World Studies School, Business and Technology School. Glen Este High School was composed of the following small schools: School of American Studies, Communication Technology School, School of Scientific Studies, West Clermont Institute of Performing Arts. The small school program was suspended due to budgetary concerns. The IB program is the only remnant at Amelia High School. The two schools are soon to be combined to form West Clermont High School, which will open on August 25th, 2017.
