WELCOME FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT
The Pettisville Schools opened the 2020-21 school year with face to face education for all of our students. This is a challenging year with the COVID-19 virus attacking our nation. We have successfully been educating our students following the protocols from the Federal, State and County Health Departments. We have accomplished this with the dedication and hard work of our staff and students.
Welcome to Pettisville Schools. We are pleased you have chosen to visit our web site. Pettisville is a small district covering thirty-four square miles in central Fulton County, Ohio and serves the unincorporated communities of Pettisville and Tedrow.

A lot has been happening at Pettisville in the past few years. In 2011, the district opened an all-new PK-12 building, rated LEED Gold, with daylighting in the high school, geothermal heating and cooling, and features many other energy saving features. The school includes many design elements patterned after the 1929 original building, and a small theatre that can be expanded into a full feature auditorium capable of seating 600.
In February of 2012 the student atrium was opened, funded by the Pettisville School Foundation. The atrium provides a student union type atmosphere for students to congregate, wait for rides, or study. The atrium, along with entire school—offers wireless access.
Since 2013, a school owned Aeronautica 750 kW wind turbine has generated enough power to meet all of the electric needs of the district and qualify the district as a “net zero energy site.” In the summer of 2014, the “south fields project” was opened, including three ball fields and a soccer field.
