Badger Elementary, Middle and High School form a 175,000 square foot state of the art K-12 facility that services the largest geographical school district in Trumbull County. Students attending the Joseph Badger School, named after a circuit riding minister, Reverend Joseph Badger reside in Gustavus, Hartford, Kinsman, Orangeville or Vernon Township.

There is also a small population of open enrollment students attending from neighboring school districts. Joseph Badger offers a diversified curriculum including Kindergarten/Enrichment and college preparatory courses which include five high school advanced placement (AP) classes. Badger Middle School is one of the select schools in Ohio to offer three grade eight classes earning high school credit; French, Algebra and Intro to Physics and Chemistry.  Joseph Badger offers a comprehensive co-curricular program coinciding with academic offerings and an interscholastic sports program which personifies team play, opponent respect and continued sportsmanship in all contests.
