Facilities

The construction of new buildings for five elementary schools, a new junior high, and a new high school was completed in 2012. Usage of the new high school building began in January 2013.

The five elementary schools and single junior high that feed Wayne High School are as follows:

  • Charles Huber Elementary
  • Monticello Elementary
  • Rushmore Elementary
  • Valley Forge Elementary
  • Wright Brothers Elementary
  • Weisenborn Junior High

The old high school comprised seven separate single-story buildings connected by covered walkways: Filbrun Hall (including the cafeteria, library, music rehearsal hall, and woodworking and metalworking shops), Hawke Hall, Storck Hall, Douglass Hall, Shank Hall, Alumni Hall, and the Gymnasium and Auditorium.

The Gymnasium and Auditorium were retained for continued usage.

The new building covers approximately 292,000 square feet. The building includes a new and larger gymnasium.

Wayne High School competes interscholastically in boys and girls sports as a member of the Greater Western Ohio Conference (GWOC). Wayne's current athletic director and head football coach is Jay Minton[2].
