The Wapakoneta School District encompasses the City of Wapakoneta and the adjacent villages of Buckland, Cridersville, St. Johns, and Uniopolis. Five facilities - one high school (8-12), one middle school (5-7), and two elementaries (K-4) - serve the district.
Our public schools maintain a student-teacher ratio of 20:1. Wapakoneta's high school graduate rate is 93.5%, and the district's overall student attendance rate is 96.1%.
These statistics attest to the quality of our students and school staff. We believe they say much about our families, too. Our students learn the value of hard work and excellence at home.
