    Schools And Libraries

    An Early Center of Education

    Education has been of great importance to the Granville community from the time of its very establishment. Just three weeks after reaching Granville in the fall of 1805, the original pioneer settlers decided to build a log cabin where eighty children would attend school. By 1820, public school classes were being held in a three-story brick building.

    Granville Exempted Village Schools

    The Granville Exempted Village School District, which serves 2500 students in four schools, is one of Ohio's best public school districts. The schools earned an "Excellent with Distinction" rating on the most recent Local Report Card, which is the highest classification awarded by the Ohio Department of Education. For the tenth consecutive year, the Granville district exceeded every state indicator. (A state indicator is a goal established by the State of Ohio for the percentage of students at or above the proficient level on the fourth-, sixth-, and ninth-grade tests; as well as a goal for attendance rates and graduation rates.) Granville is one of only four school districts in the State of Ohio that have met 100 percent of the indicators for every year since 1998.

    Denison University

    Denison is one of the nation's premiere liberal arts colleges. A non-sectarian institution independent of any denominational affiliation since the 1960s, Denison actively seeks outstanding students from across the country and around the world. Denison offers a rich and deep education in the natural sciences, humanities, social sciences, and fine arts; and extraordinary campus leadership opportunities aimed at preparing graduates who will make a difference in their communities, their country, and the world.
