Steve Thompson, Superintendent
Welcome to the Willoughby-Eastlake School District. Our school district is the largest school district in Lake County Ohio with approximately 8,500 students. The Willoughby-Eastlake School District spans across seven communities including Eastlake, Lakeline, Timberlake, Waite Hill, Willowick, Willoughby, and Willoughby Hills.
We strive to prepare students for college and careers by putting students first, providing quality instruction, and spending targeted time on task.
We are motivated to embrace the changes in education and as a result we are embarking on unprecedented learning opportunities. As I am sure you will agree, today’s students are challenged with academic demands they face in the classroom, requirements placed on them with respect to standardized testing and their post-secondary career decisions. We understand that while our students adapt to the curricular changes we must not allow them to lose their passion for learning. The School of Innovation, the Success Academy, and our new programs at the Willoughby-Eastlake Career Academy, are examples of our commitment to providing an excellent education while giving the students an opportunity to be engaged in their learning. We are confident that the changes we have planned district wide will improve instruction and enable our students to succeed in a rapidly changing world.
Willoughby-Eastlake City Schools has gone through many changes since 1829 and will continue to go through many more. We are excited about the changes to come and we are ready to be challenged!
