  • Fairport Harbor School District Quality Profile reflects growth, commitment to personalized learning

    A brochure distributed by the Fairport Harbor Schools earlier in October highlights some of the district’s accomplishments over the 2016-17 school year.

    The Fairport Harbor Exempted Village School District Quality Profile arrived in area mailboxes during the week of Oct. 2.

    “The purpose of the Quality Profile is to provide ‘the rest of the story,’ giving the Fairport Harbor community a report on how our schools are performing in the areas that matter most,” the publication’s cover reads. “The Fairport Harbor Board of Education believes schools should provide opportunities for students to pursue excellence in many forms. The education we provide goes far beyond what is measured by standardized tests.”

    School Board President Mary Javins in an Oct. 10 phone interview said she’s seen lots of growth in the district in her time as a school official.

    “I’ve been on the school board for 16 years and, in the last 10 to 12 years, we’ve added a lot of programs we haven’t had before, such as International Baccalaureate (candidacy at McKinley Elementary School), personalized learning and early college. That was the biggest thing and it’s blown up into our design lab,” Javins said, referring to the increasing number of students earning college credit while still in high school, along with the new space at Fairport Harding Middle/High School where project-based education takes place day in and day out at the school.

  • Fairport Harbor marching band director blends experience, understanding, respect to gain great results

    By Jonathan Tressler, The News-Herald
    POSTED: 10/05/17, 9:37 PM EDT

    If you ask Fairport Harding High/Middle School’s marching band director, Chris Ruzin, what the band is all about, he’ll likely tell you it’s all about the kids in the band.

    The 38-year-old musician, who grew up in Grand Junction, Colorado, said he’s less concerned about leading the band than he is about teaching his students how to become competent leaders and band members, themselves.

    “I feel like you need to try to explain to students why you think the subject is important and why it can be meaningful in their lives,” Ruzin said in an Oct. 5 phone interview. “I don’t expect that they’re just into it right off the bat. So I try to get them to want to do it because it’s something that they can have fun with and it’s something that they can be proud of doing.”

    He added that, “Even though they might not all be planning on making a career out of music, I want them to know it’s something they can do for the rest of their lives.”

Fairport Harbor Exempted Village School District Quality Profile

  • Please download a printer-friendly version of our Quality Profile.

    What is a Quality Profile? The purpose of the Quality Profile is to provide “the rest of the story,” giving the Fairport Harbor community a report on how our schools are performing in the areas that matter most. The Fairport Harbor community believes schools should provide opportunities for students to pursue excellence in many forms. The education we provide goes far beyond what is measured by the Ohio Department of Education standardized tests. The best way to prepare our students for success in college, career and life is to create opportunities for personalized learning tailored to individual student talents and interests. That is why Fairport students are learning today and leading tomorrow.
