Superintendent Paul Imhoff, Ed.D.

Paul Imhoff My family and I became part of the Upper Arlington family in 2013, and we quickly learned what has drawn people to this special place for so many years. It's more than the tree-lined streets and beautiful parks - it's a deep sense of community pride and cooperation.

While I am proud to be a member of this great community and a parent in this fantastic school district, I am humbled to serve as its superintendent. It is an honor to work with this fine group of educators as they make a positive impact in the lives of our students. I am invigorated by the thoughts of what is yet to come. Over the next few years, we will be laying the groundwork to build upon the district's tradition of excellence and reach even greater levels of achievement and opportunity for all students.

If you have any ideas or questions about our schools, please feel free to contact me by phone or email.

New teachers, growing student population welcomed for new school year

We are incredibly excited to have all of our students and our staff back for the 2022-2023 school year! 

In the days leading up to the first day of school on August 16, we were thrilled to welcome our amazing staff and have everyone back together to kick off the new year. This year, we have more than 40 new teachers joining our team. While the majority of them were hired for existing open positions, four were hired for new positions, with Board of Education approval, due to enrollment growth at the elementary level. 

Enrollment growth presents an exciting challenge for our schools and our community. As of the start of the school year, our enrollment has risen to approximately 6,300 students and will likely continue to grow throughout the year. We’ll be providing updates on staffing and enrollment to the Board of Education this fall.

Summer programming thrives as we also focus on fall planning

This summer, there is much to do in our schools as we work on final preparations for the upcoming school year and continue to provide academic and well-being support for our students through our summer programs. 

We are thrilled to have approximately more than 1,000 students taking part in Summer Academy, Summer Reading for grades 1-3 and our extended school year program. These are great opportunities for our students to grow their academic skills, earn middle school or high school credit, explore their passions and foster meaningful relationships.

Celebrations, milestones mark end of year for our students

It’s hard to believe that the 2021-2022 school year has come to an end! Over the past couple of weeks, we have celebrated important milestones for our students who are moving on to their next step - whether it’s middle school, high school, college, career or the military. We’re so proud of each and every one of our students at every grade level. 

We were incredibly excited to celebrate a very special group of students — the Class of 2022 — as they joined the ranks of Golden Bear alumni at the 98th annual Upper Arlington High School commencement on May 29. The approximately 490 members of the Class of 2022 have so much to be proud of during their time here. Among them, there are nine National Merit Finalists and 16 Commended Scholars, and nearly 100 members of the prestigious Cum Laude Society. There are accomplished artists who have won state and regional awards, athletes who have competed at the highest level, and individuals who have explored their passions through the performing arts and extracurricular activities like mock and moot trial, Science Olympiad and robotics.
