It's About ME: Community

The Mariemont Experience is about Community. The community is the tie that binds the school district together. Read about how one student brings school and the community together here.

The Mariemont City School District serves the eastern Cincinnati suburbs of Fairfax, Mariemont, Terrace Park and Columbia Township, but it is the sense of community within the district that is such a unique experience. The school year is rounded out by flag raising on the first day of school and parents walking their seniors to school one last time on the last day of school. In between those days, lie many school-sponsored activities within the community, from fundraisers to parades to arts performances. In Terrace Park, each sixth grade students has the opportunity to become a certified crossing guard, directing road and foot traffic before and after school. Read Caroline's story about her community involvement here. As you drive by one of our four school buildings, you will see bikes parked outside of the buildings, which the students ride to and from school. Many of the students also go home for lunch, enjoying a home-cooked meal in the middle of the day.

The school district could not provide the diverse curricular options, 21st century instructional practices or leadership opportunities without the support of the many community members, parents and volunteers that assist with so many aspects of maintaining a high-performing district. Read Jack Smith's story about his involvement with the school district and the community here.

School-support organizations such as PTOs, the Alumni Association, the Mariemont School Foundation, the Athletic Boosters and the Arts Association all work together and independently to ensure that each student and teacher is provided the tools and support her or she needs to excel in any given field or project. Read about how one couple has made a difference through their involvement with the school district here. Community groups such as Kiwanis have awarded over $150,000 in scholarships to students for outstanding community service. Volunteers and community members take time out of busy schedules to coordinate author visits, field trips and extending learning opportunities such as Girls on the Run, Everybody Counts, anti-bullying efforts and COSI visits.
