Information For Prospective Residents

Dear Prospective Kettering Resident:

We are extremely proud of the academic, co-curricular and extracurricular programs that we offer to the students who attend our eight elementary schools, our two middle schools and our high school.

The Kettering City School District prides itself on offering a strong academic program to our students. The young people at our middle and high schools have an opportunity to choose from more than 200 course offerings, including gifted, honors and Advanced Placement classes. Fairmont High School is also an International Baccalaureate World School, offering students the IB Diploma Programme, as well as individual IB courses. 

Likewise, our elementary school program offers students a challenging and enriching curriculum that includes -- in addition to the traditional academic offerings -- strong music, art, physical education and computer education programs.

In addition to the strong athletic and extracurricular opportunities offered by the Kettering City School District, we are fortunate to be part of a community with a strong Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Department.

The Kettering Recreation Complex has won many local and national awards based on its well-rounded programming; and the Fraze Pavilion, located in the heart of Kettering, boasts a line-up of nationally known artists and performers.

In addition, the James S. Trent Arena, located on the Kettering Fairmont High School Campus, offers Kettering residents access to a year-round indoor walking/jogging track, and the Kettering Fitness & Wellness Center -- located adjacent to the Trent Arena -- is a full-service center that provides members access to state-of-the-art fitness equipment and certified fitness and wellness professionals.

After you have had a chance to look at the information on our web site, please feel free to contact me if you have any additional questions  regarding the Kettering City School District.

Welcome to Kettering. I am certain you will agree, once you have had a chance to look us over, that we live up to our motto: “Good Schools -- Good Community!”
