Yesterday was the annual State of the Schools event in which the community came together at the high school to highlight steps taken in education throughout Upper Arlington. From 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., the high school was bustling with community members. Superintendent Paul Imhoff presented videos made throughout the district looking into various programs, organizations, student groups, and initiatives being taken to better the future of academics in the city. Various performances were put on by students in groups such as the Wickliffe Golden Star Choir and the cast of the Jones Fall production, Mary Poppins.

Along with presentations, the main gym hosted a number of tables where groups presented information about themselves and their goals and ambitions for the future. Parents and community members walked around and gained insight from students, staff, and administrators who hosted each table. The event came to a close with an optimistic view of the future.
