Akron Public Schools | (2019) Complete List With Links

Did you know Akron is the birthplace of America’s modern public school system? In 1847, the Akron community came together to create a public school system with one main district, where children were taught in classes divided by age and academic achievement. The Akron School Law and the system that followed worked so well that it was adopted across the country!

Today, Akron continues to be at the forefront of education, and the public schools in this city are some of the best in Ohio. We hope you’ll find this complete list helpful as you determine what Akron neighborhood to live in, and where to send your kids to school.
