In this 28th edition of Mentor Public Schools Financial Facts, we are sharing the results of Cleveland Magazine’s famous Rating the Suburbs issue. The annual article is released over the summer each year and boasts that it is intended to help people find a friendly neighborhood in which to live, with quality schools and low taxes.
In the Education Stats category of ratings, Mentor Schools was named the best in Lake County! This ranking is based on a number of factors, including curricular and extracurricular offerings. Our district ranked 15th overall in the Education category out of 77 suburbs in the Greater Cleveland area.
At the same time, the ratings also showed Mentor residents pay the lowest taxes in Lake County at $1,780 per $100,000 valuation. Only three cities evaluated for the article in Northeast Ohio pay less than that.
We hope you continue to find the information provided via our Financial Facts valuable in our effort to run Mentor Schools efficiently and transparently, while providing a high quality education for students.
Thank you for your continued support.
