Wyandot Elementary School is a Prekindergarten - 5 elementary school serving 618 students. Wyandot is one of 12 elementary schools in Dublin City Schools, one of Ohio's largest and highest achieving school districts. A high percentage of our population consists of upper middle class white students and Asian students. The student body is also composed of a variety of students identified as gifted learners, English Language Learners, and students with mild to severe disabilities.

Many traditions have been established in Wyandot's 29 year history. Wyandot prides itself as an inclusive and welcoming neighborhood school. We start each school year with a new family open house, a kindergarten welcome night, and a welcome back to school ice cream social. We begin every school day with morning announcements, Power of One awards and the Wyandot Pledge, "I am a smart, special, valuable person. I respect myself and I respect others. My words and actions are kind and honest. I accept only my best in all I do. I am proud to be me."

The instructional approach and philosophy of Wyandot is do what is best for kids. The Wyandot staff supports all learners with an emphasis on developing the whole child through a culture of enrichment. This is evident by staff members that can speak not only about our students' learning styles and readiness, but can also speak about students' interests and needs. Knowing our students as people and learners allows our teachers to inspire our students to take risks and persevere to achieve more.
