About Meigs Local School District
The Meigs Local School District encompasses approximately 200 square miles in the western part of Meigs County. The district includes the Villages of Middleport, Pomeroy, and Rutland. With a total enrollment of 1800 students, the district houses two elementary schools, a middle school, and a comprehensive (academic and career & technical) high school.
The district was the beneficiary of an OSFC program which resulted in the construction of the elementary and middle schools and the complete renovation of the high school.
The district also recently constructed a new athletic field house and a new bus garage/maintenance facility and renovated a former elementary school into a Central Office complex.
The district, which received a rating of Effective for the 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 school year state report cards, is committed to making the necessary improvements to achieve academic success for every child. The district contains one of the unique comprehensive high schools in the State of Ohio in that it offers a complete academic and a complete career and technical offering under one roof. The high school also offers the career and technical programs to the two other high schools in the county.
Meigs Local enjoys a unique relationship with the University of Rio Grande. The university has constructed a branch campus building on the campus of Meigs High School/Meigs Middle School. The goal is to offer college level classes to high school students under the Post Secondary Options Program without the students having to leave school and drive many miles to get to a college campus. Rio Grande will also offer courses and professional development to educators in the area and in particular to educators in Meigs County.
