Principal's Corner


Scott Minnig, Principal

High School



I would like to thank our custodial, secretarial, and maintenance staff for all of their hard work this summer.  Our building looks great and is ready for another positive school year.


Our building goals at Wapakoneta High School for this school year are as follows:

1.    Peer Observation – each staff member will participate in 4 learning walk opportunities throughout the school year.

2.    Establish positive relationships with our students.

3.    We want each teacher to be daring and try something new in the classroom this school year. 

4.    Teachers will schedule at least five parent conferences for November 26, 2019.

5.    Each teacher will make at least 2 parent contacts per week. 

6.    Our staff will increase their understanding and implementation of Depth of Knowledge.

7.    Our 8th grade staff will complete a book study on ICU. 

We had an amazing turnout for our back to school celebration.  It was exciting to see all the students and parents attending this event. 


Ohio Department of Education has created new graduation requirements for the class of 2023.  Over the course of the next three years, we will be transitioning towards these new requirements, which are going to provide our students with three different pathways to earn a high school diploma.  This is going to create a challenge to monitor and track each student’s progress towards their diploma. 


Our students will be completing a school culture survey three different times throughout this school year.  We hope to use this information to improve the experience for all students.
