A Place Where Every Student Belongs

Learning does not stop at the classroom door, and some of life’s most important lessons aren’t found in textbooks.

In Pickerington, we ensure students have a breadth of extracurricular and co-curricular activities promoting a well-rounded education that includes lessons in leadership and teamwork, appreciation and participation in the arts, and social skills that will help them succeed in life.

These activities are found at all grade levels, from student leadership groups like the “Leader in Me” and “Young Gents” programs to student government, and community service activities. In Pickerington Schools, every student can find a niche!

For example, Pickerington Schools offers:

  • Quality athletic programs. Many district athletes go on to compete at the college level. Several alumni even play for professional football, basketball and baseball teams!

  • Nearly 50 high school sports teams frequently bring state, regional and district championships home, as well as more than 30 teams competing at the junior high school level. Many district athletes go on to compete in Division I college sports each year, and several of our graduates have gone on to play professional football, baseball, and basketball!

  • 20 high school vocal and instrumental groups that consistently receive statewide awards — and invitations to perform at venues like the Rose Bowl Parade and Disneyland.

  • Multiple highly regarded high school theater and musical productions each year in two performing arts centers.

There are more than 60 clubs and activities in our high schools! With diverse activities ranging from foreign language clubs, organizations formed around political and social issues, mock trial, addiction awareness and prevention, environmental topics, artistic endeavors, physical activities and more, every student can find a group in which they can feel like they belong!

One example of the benefits of a well-rounded education can be found in our student-athletes. The average grade point average for our high school athletes is 3.46, a testament to the work and commitment of our students!
