Minster students reach for excellence!

Minster Elementary School, in the Minster Local School District, is located in west central, rural, Auglaize County, Ohio. The community of Minster retains a rich heritage from the early settlers, a band of German immigrants, and boasts a population slightly exceeding 2,800. The dedicated, civic minded community members of Minster place a very high value on education. The slogan, "A Tradition of Excellence" appears on our school letterhead and is evidenced in our daily accomplishments.

The teachers at Minster Elementary are child centered and highly skilled. We provide a comprehensive program to meet the needs of all learners, challenging each student to stand on their "mental tiptoes" to grow and achieve all they can. Our goal is to give every student a sense of belonging and pride in being a Minster Wildcat, as well as a strong foundational education. We work hard to keep close track of each child's skill development as well as their emotional well-being, and regularly adjust programming based on this monitoring. Our students, staff, and families know it is an HONOR to be a WILDCAT. With that honor comes determination to work hand in hand and do whatever it takes to nurture and develop the whole child.
