District Profile - We are The Falcons!

 
The mission of the Firelands Local Schools is to create a community of lifelong learners that will function as responsible, self-sufficient citizens of a global society.
 
We currently serve over 1700 students from Erie and Lorain Counties. Our district covers of 90 square miles! We were formed in 1952 with the consolidation of Brownhelm, Camden, Florence, and Henrietta School Districts. South Amherst Local Schools joined us in the late 1980's and together we are the Firelands Falcons.
 
Firelands High School has a partnership with Lorain County Community College which allows us offer over 50 semester hours of College Credit on the campus of FHS. The Class of 2017 recieved over $ 920,000 in scholarships. In addition to the scholarships, they earned $390,000 worth of College Credits through the CCP Program. Along with our outstanding general education offerings, our visual and performing arts programs are respected state-wide. Our FFA chapter continues to shine as they were recently named National Champions-Modle of Innovation.
 
South Amherst Middle School, a  6-8 grade building, launched a Robotics Program and competed in thier first competition. High school credit is obtainable on the middle school campus. Students are encouraged to become involved through avenues such as National Jr. Honor Society, Gaming Club, Soap Box Derby Teams, etc.
 
Firelands Elementary School houses our youngest (k-5) students.  Students have the opportunity to participate in the arts, Lego Club, Camp Invention, and coding. Situated on the main campus, programs have been initiated to allow supervised visits from students at the high school. Opportunites to particiapte in TEE, Food for America and general aiding for students that wish to work with children upon college graduation, allow for wonderful opportunities for both other and younger students. The PTG is vital for the connection between home and school.
 
We are a rural community that has quick access via the Ohio Turnpike and State Route 2/90. We are an easy 45 minutes commute to Cleveland.
