District Overview

The Mt. Healthy City School District is located in Hamilton County in southwestern Ohio, and consists of three small communities: the City of Mt. Healthy and parts of Springfield and Colerain townships.

Mt. Healthy is a culturally diverse school system, with a minority enrollment of 72%. Comprehensive educational programs span prekindergarten through twelfth grade, with college preparatory and vocational opportunities. These programs, coupled with co-curricular activities, provide the district's young people with an opportunity to develop into well-rounded and knowledgeable citizens.

Annually, about 62% of our graduates pursue higher education in two or four-year colleges. Scholarship opportunities are abundant. In fact, last year's senior class was awarded more than $3 million. The district's strengths lie within its staff, diversity, program opportunities and student services. The district's goal is to improve student achievement and better prepare our young people for today's work force. The aim is to accomplish this through the continuing development of effective programs and working together with the community.
