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.

“The technology was …

Testing Reductions Recommended

The word test has been drawing groans from students for generations, but in the last few years, the idea of testing has also been creating a lot of worry for educators and parents.

There is no doubt about it - assessments are vitally important to education. They help teachers gauge students’ depth of knowledge and tailor their instruction to better fit the needs of individual learners.
