About Our District

Message from Nancy Santilli

At Kenston, we develop engaged and inspired students who are prepared to reach their potential in college and life.  We inspire excellence through an educational experience that serves as a foundation for a lifetime of success.

How do we inspire excellence?

We are inspiring excellence through people and programs.

Our teachers are inspiring students by connecting as educators, advisors and coaches.  Our teachers bring a wealth of experience, encouraging students always to be their best.

Our students are encouraged to be thinkers and writers, debaters and inventors, reaching beyond the four walls of the classroom.

On the stage, athletic fields, in the classroom and community, we are inspiring creativity, innovation, leadership, discovery, achievement, citizenship, wellness, wonder and community in a safe and caring environment.

This year, I look forward to sharing more stories of Inspired Excellence with you.

As our paths cross this year, please stop and tell me about what you have seen at Kenston that inspires you. Follow us on Twitter @KenstonSchools to be inspired.

Bomber History

As the story goes, before the formation of the Kenston Local School District, students at Bainbridge School were asked to come up with ideas for a school mascot. Why the Bombers? At the time, B-25 Bombers were constantly flying over the school from the Ravenna arsenal. Riding the wave of patriotism during World War II and having a special attachment to the B-25 that protected the freedoms our country enjoys and the servicemen overseas, the student body decided on the “Bomber” as the district mascot. In 1953, when Kenston Schools consolidated Auburn School and Bainbridge Schools, the Bombers remained adding a hint of red to our colors as homage to the Auburn “Redcats.”
