Bexley Schools
and Best Practices

About Us
At the center of a stable, close knit community, Bexley’s neighborhood schools earned the Ohio Department of Education “excellent with distinction” rating for twelve consecutive years.  On Ohio's most recent school report card, Bexley met 100 percent of the 24 Ohio Department of Education indicators in reading, writing, math, science and social studies at all grade levels.  We also reached our highest Performance Index ever: 107.4. 
U.S. News & World Report and Newsweek recognize Bexley High School as one of the top public high schools in the country.  The Bexley school system is among the two percent of Ohio school districts offering foreign language instruction in the elementary grades. Certified professionals teach visual and performing arts throughout Bexley’s entire K-12 curriculum, differentiating it from that of most public school districts.  Students benefit from class sizes that permit personal attention and foster academic excellence; they also enjoy a wide variety of courses – including 22 Advanced Placement (AP) classes at the high school level -- and extra-curricular options. 
A high level of community involvement characterizes the Bexley school system, which receives considerable support from the Bexley Education Foundation, a nonprofit funding school programs for which tax dollars are not available. Financial ratings institutions praise Bexley’s sound financial operations, solid voter history and conservative fiscal management. 

Best Practices  
Each of Bexley’s five schools follows a research-based educational best practice to help students thrive in a changing world. Best practices feature:
  • a research base that has been shown to improve student achievement over time in schools with similar characteristics;
  • a broad-based consortium providing professional development support for teachers implementing the practice;
  • external mechanisms to monitor program implementation in order to assure maintenance of program integrity.
