Points of Jacket Pride
We've got a good thing going! Check out some of the reasons we have Yellow Jacket Pride!
Our students have access to programs, activities, and services that allow them to achieve success in the classroom, on stage, at the game, and in the community.
We are proud of our many curriculum offerings, as well as the great accomplishments of our students. The success of our students is a reflection of the quality of education our staff continues to provide.
Our teachers’ continued efforts to embrace and implement new programs and state mandates are the reason why our district is able to make progress. The district looks to the future as it embraces the ever-changing landscape of education by maintaining financial stability, strong leadership, and quality education.
It is the mission of Sidney City Schools to inspire, empower, and prepare our students for their best future. Our vision is to meet the needs of all students in a safe, respectful, and responsible learning community.
At A Glance
Our district is made up of approximately 3,300 students, 6 schools, 200 teachers, and 150 support staff such as aides, custodians, bus drivers, cooks, and secretaries. Each school also has a security officer or SRO and a trained emergency response team for student and staff safety.
Starting as early as fifth and sixth grade, we offer our students a variety of boys, girls, and co-ed sports and provide our students the opportunity to become members and leaders of clubs. Students may also choose to become involved in our highly successful music program by taking band, choir, or orchestra.

Sidney Is A Spirit
We are fortunate to be a part of the dynamic community of Sidney! We are a hands-on community. Actors of kindness. Doers. Leaders looking to mentor the next generation forward.
Residents of all ages can choose from a number of recreational activities, public arts programs, concerts, and celebrations. Vibrant downtown Sidney boasts fine dining, shopping, and plentiful entertainment experiences. Our community celebrates the outdoors with the vast 226-acre Tawawa Park and neighborhood parks system. Sidney is the trailhead to the Great Miami Riverway.
Industry opportunities are endless. Some of the best-advanced manufacturing, engineering, and agriculture-based jobs in the state can be found in Sidney and surrounding Shelby County.
There is truth to the phrase “It takes a village to raise a child.” At Sidney City Schools, we know our schools are a pillar of our community and the involvement of our community in our schools is vital. These institutions and organizations are some who work with our schools to help make our community a better place to live.
