Ravenna Public Schools

Planted in Promise...Growing in Pride

About Ravenna Public Schools

About 1100 students fill out buildings where a dedicated staff helps each one grow both academically and emotionally. Our size helps us to know each and every student and their families. We offer a challenging curriculum, opportunities for dual enrollment within the county and opportunities for students to start career training at our county Career Tech Center.
