Congratulations to the Ohio Purple Star Schools Class of 2023!

The Ohio Department of Education is proud to announce that 165 Ohio schools received Purple Star designations as members of the Purple Star Class of 2023. Purple Star schools show a significant commitment to serving students and families connected to our nation’s armed forces. Twenty Olentangy schools have received this esteemed award, with Freedom Trail Elementary receiving the honor for the first time and Alum Creek Elementary renewing the designation this year.

“We take great pride in the work of our military liaisons and building staff to support our military families across Olentangy, and the Purple Star is evidence of the collaboration and connection that makes Olentangy stand apart,” shares Superintendent Mark T. Raiff.

Each Purple Star designation is valid for three years and schools must meet a set of criteria to be considered. Click here for a full list of Olentangy’s Purple Star schools and Military Family Liaisons by building.
