Westerville City Schools District
Founded in 1855, the Westerville School District maintains more than 20 schools, including three high schools and three specialized curriculum K-5 schools for Arts, Global Studies, and Math/Science. Be it in the classroom with multiple National Merit Scholars annually, or on the field with state championships, excellence is the expectation, not the goal.
Otterbein University, a community and cultural staple since 1847, is annually rated as one of the premier liberal arts colleges in the country. Boasting 3,000 students from 30 states and more than 30 countries, Otterbein offers more than 50 baccalaureate and master level majors. Always ahead of the curve, Otterbein was the first institution of higher learning in the United States to admit women without restrictions; the first to include women on its faculty; and one of the first to admit students of color.
