A theme I have identified this year for Gahanna-Jefferson Public Schools is joy: peace with the past, confidence in the future, and joy for the here and now. Of course, it is during this season that the joy of giving comes to mind. 


As the superintendent of our district of excellence, I see giving each and every day inside our classrooms. It brings me great joy to see our teachers and staff giving their time and relentless energy to each of our students. The gift of a safe and welcoming educational environment is our top priority as a district.

Each one of our staff members makes a unique and important contribution to our students’ growth, including inspiring lessons, superb instruction, real world assessments, guidance, coaching, clean environments, hot meals and safe transportation.

One of the most fulfilling aspects of our profession is that we also receive joy from our students. Our staff welcomes gifts like smiles, laughs and encouragement from our students. The gift of seeing a student’s personal growth and sense of accomplishment inside and outside of the classroom brings all of our staff joy.

Our community also models generosity and joy during this season of giving to help each other. Our buildings, teams and student groups often connect our schools to the community by finding ways to get involved with the community and that is very apparent during the holidays. The amount of volunteer time, food and clothing and toy drives for our local organizations who help those in need continues to warm my heart.

Our staff contributes to the community effort with the fundraising tradition when we collectively donate to local charitable organizations. This campaign has raised an average of more than $10,000 per year since 2017.

It is my hope that during winter break, our students will enjoy time with their family and friends; time to reconnect and create new memories. GJPS has had a successful and joy-filled first semester, and we look forward to everyone returning back to our buildings on January 4 to continue their exceptional education provided by Gahanna-Jefferson Public Schools.

The Gahanna-Jefferson community places a high value on education and expects its schools to prepare students for success beyond the classroom. A well-rounded education goes beyond standardized tests, which is primarily what the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) measures with the annual school report cards. 

The purpose of this Quality Profile is to provide a complete story of how our schools perform in the areas that matter most to the Gahanna-Jefferson community.

The content of the Quality Profile is based on these five categories

  • Academics
  • The Arts, S.T.E.M & Technology
  • Student Services
  • Student Leadership & Activities
