The Granville community Granville is a quaint, New England-style community located in Licking County (east central Ohio). My family and I are proud to call Granville our home. With its bright community spirit, community celebrations, and extensive recreational activities, Granville residents enjoy an exceptional quality of life.
Education is a strong community value. Both Denison University and the Granville Exempted Village Schools enjoy the unwavering support of residents and visitors alike. And while Granville is relatively small, we enjoy many of the same opportunities of a larger, metropolitan city.
Outstanding Academic Achievement. The Granville School District is consistently rated among Ohio’s top public school districts. For 12 consecutive years, the district has received the “Excellent” or more recent “Excellent with Distinction” rating. The Granville Schools met all 26 State Indicators. The district’s graduation rate is 99.5 percent, and the attendance rate is 96.3 percent.
Smaller is better. We are committed to helping every child reach his or her potential. Smaller schools allow us to provide personal attention for every child.
Bigger opportunities. Granville schools offer many opportunities for students, despite our more personal size. Our teaching staff is highly educated and experienced—with 84% holding master’s degrees or higher. We offer students an ever-growing selection of courses and program options. Then we top off their educational experience with award-winning athletics and arts programs.
Student success in Granville and beyond. The 185 members of the Class of 2012 received 619 acceptances to 200 institutions. As they attend 77 of those college and universities across the country and world, we know they will proudly represent Granville. Our new graduates reported earning over $4.5 million in scholarships.
Exceptional community support. The Granville community – from our parents and staff to our community residents, volunteers and business partners – all provide a solid foundation of support for our students, ensuring maximum opportunities for success.
