Welcome to Danbury Local School District, which serves Danbury Township, the village of Marblehead and community of Lakeside on the shores of Lake Erie. We are committed to providing our students with a well-rounded and relevant educational experience that will enable them to be successful in future endeavors. Our focus on high achievement permeates everything we do in the academics, arts, and athletics.
The mission of the Danbury Local School District is to educate in partnership with family and community to prepare each student for a life of learning and personal success. This mission is a lived experience of academic excellence that begins in our elementary school and flows through the middle school and high school. Our PreK-12 curriculum, both in the academics and the arts, reinforces and nurtures basic skills along with challenging even the most capable of students. The opportunities and experiences in the arts are integral pieces of the educational experience in the Danbury Local School District.
At all levels throughout the District, Danbury offers a broad array of extra-curricular and athletic opportunities for our students. It is important to us as a District that our students are also connected through these activities, which research has shown has impact on the academic performance of students in a PreK-12 comprehensive program.
As stated in our mission, our community, students, parents, and staff must share the responsibility of a quality education not only in the classroom but in all activities surrounding the school community. The partnership that the District shares with the home and greater community in providing a safe, nurturing environment is vital to the success of all students, as they build their academic foundation at the elementary level, further develop their skills as adolescents at the middle school level, and begin to make decisions that will impact their future while engaged in the academics, arts, and athletics at the high school level.
In closing, Danbury Local School District is committed to an educational process that is student-focused and where lifelong learning is important for students to be successful in a global society. Our staff is committed to building a foundation of excellence in every student who sits in every classroom of this District. Together, with staff, faculty, administration, School Board, and the greater community, we will see the foundations of excellence come alive. Welcome to Danbury and best wishes!
