The Heath City Schools has built a tradition of providing an education for the students of Heath that prepare them to be successful, thriving citizens. Preparing students for success however is an ever-changing endeavor. This section of our website will briefly showcase the current curricular initiatives that are underway in our district. However, to truly understand the dynamic learning experience that happens in our buildings everyday, you would be well served to communicate regularly with your child, his or her teacher(s) and building principal, and make numerous visits to the school events that each building hosts.
Ohio’s New Learning Standards
As a parent or student, you may want to know, what does this mean for me? The new learning standards are the foundation for a more hands on, engaging learning experience that will demand a higher level of thought, creativity, and teamwork from each student. Research shows that students learn by doing, and they also learn in many different ways.
Meeting the needs of students in an environment where students have regular access to information through technology, and can communicate effortlessly across cities, states, and countries is a daunting task. It is the goal of the Heath City Schools to provide as much cutting-edge technology as our budget allows, while enabling students to use the technology they bring to school in ways that enrich their learning experience.
