Wickliffe Schools 

Wickliffe City School District

Wickliffe City School District has been ambitiously planning the new educational Wickliffe Campus to house students in a Preschool through 12th-grade facility which will replace the aging city school buildings. Engaging with the community, the district is pleased to share its educational vision which seeks to reimagine education by addressing the challenges that students face, preparing them for success in life, and ensuring they receive the best educational opportunities possible.

Wickliffe City Schools, in collaboration with ThenDesign Architecture and Hammond Construction, is in the process of constructing a new PK-12 school to replace the existing elementary, middle, and high school buildings. 
  • The new 204,000 SF building will contain features that support the educational vision of the district and the needs of the community. 
  • The new building will include a community hub, two gymnasiums, a 500 seat Performing Arts Center, and the Wickliffe Family Resource Center. 
  • A variety of educational spaces will facilitate different types of learning, from larger collaborative spaces to flexible classrooms, to small group rooms as well as specialty areas for STEAM, technology, science, preschool, arts, and athletics. 
  • The project partners are pursuing LEED Silver Certification for the project, ensuring that the new campus will be energy efficient and environmentally friendly.
  • The new campus site includes new synthetic turf at the stadium (installed summer of 2021), relocation of the existing baseball field, and site preparation for future athletic and practice fields. 
  • After construction is complete in August 2023, the existing schools will be demolished.

The Wickliffe Family Resource Center (WFRC), operated by the Wickliffe City School District, is an organization that strives to bring together services and activities that educate, develop skills, and promote health and well-being in order to improve the outcomes of students, families, and individuals in our community.
