Put-in-Bay School is located on beautiful South Bass Island in Lake Erie. Our school district not only serves the children of South Bass but also the students of Middle Bass Island and North Bass Island. The unique nature of our school provides both challenges and opportunities.
The most obvious challenge of being an island school district is transportation. Instead of getting on buses, our students get on ferries, planes, and charter boats. Field trips, sporting events, or taking coursework at the vocational school on the mainland is a much different experience for our students. We are constantly keeping an eye on the weather . . . for obvious reasons!
We do not allow challenges to get in the way of opportunity. Our school district is very fortunate to have parents, business owners, and a board of education that support the wide range of academic opportunities we offer our students:
One-on-one musical instrument and vocal lesson
One-on-one after-class instruction
High school quiz bowl team
Wide variety of courses for college credit
Numerous hands-on / educational field trips
Our students enjoy many of the extra-curricular activities offered to mainland students, including cross-country, volleyball, cheerleading, basketball, archery, and track.We recently started a competitive sailing team and plan to offer dance.
We feel our little school is a “throw-back” to how schools used to be with a tight-knit family environment and with dedicated teachers who work together to ensure each child reaches their potential. If you have questions about our school, please feel free to contact us anytime.
