AWLS will partner with our community to engage all students in educational opportunities empowering them to be active, responsible, and productive citizens in our global society.
Over 60 years ago, Anthony Wayne Local Schools evolved from the vision of the citizens and school boards of Monclova, Waterville, and Whitehouse. Students attended classes in their respective home communities and no central educational facility existed. Today, the Anthony Wayne school community includes six education buildings, over 4,400 students and hundreds of teaching, administrative, and support staff, within 77 square miles; and serves Monclova Township, Waterville, Whitehouse, and parts of Swanton, Middleton, and Providence Townships. The school district that began as an attempt to relieve some of the financial burdens of three small school systems has emerged as a statewide educational leader and a model for sound financial management.
