Superintendent, 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.

As the district approaches its second century, it’s clear that our community still feels strongly about providing children the …

Just the Beginning of the Story

The latest state report card results are out, and the news is very positive for Upper Arlington Schools. We earned eight As and one B, which places us in the top five districts in the state when it comes to graded measures on the report card. Our Performance Index score, a figure that measures student achievement on state tests, improved from 107.2 to 108.9. This year’s PI ranks 25th out of the 610 traditional districts in the state and second in central Ohio. That’s a big jump from …
