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 over 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

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.

Students are encouraged to become involved through avenues such as National Jr. Honor Society, Gaming Club, Soap Box Derby Teams, etc.
Firelands Elementary School
