The schools are the foundation of the community as school-sponsored events are well-supported by parents, students, alumni, teachers, and staff. The goal of developing well-rounded students in a safe and caring environment where every student is known and valued is shared by all.
Highland Local Schools is located in southern Morrow County and serves the towns of Sparta, Marengo, and Chesterville. We offer four schools, including preschool, elementary, middle, and high school campuses.
The board takes pride in making decisions to forward the district, schools and in result the community. All board meetings are tentatively scheduled to take place the second Wednesday of the month at 7pm in the high school cafeteria.
