Great school with great teachers and teaching tecniques. Students progress is monitored exceptionally well. Many opportunities for extracurricular activities with enough variety to suit any student and let them explore different avenues of interest. Strong parental involvement. Safety and discipline is enforced and a learning and developmental aid for students. Very positive focused atmosphere and influences.

This school system is excellent. Overall, they have a very good and dedicated staff, very good curriculum, a great selection of Advanced Placement courses in the HS, and numerous extra curricular activities in both the arts and athletics. They have a state of the art all-season sports facility. Medina's a great place to raise and educate kids. up=to=

The school is, by and large, very good. As with any school, there are problems and teachers who aren't as great as they could be, but in general it's a very good school with good opportunities for students. My only complaint was that, when I was there, there were FAR more extra-curricular opportunities that centered around sports and popularity rather than intellectual activity.
