The Joseph Badger Local School District will provide academic excellence to all students through an effective and challenging learning environment that encourages students to become independent thinkers and lifelong learners. The new Joseph Badger School opened September 5, 2006 with the first day of classes for students. 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.


The Joseph Badger Local School District Board of Education, with assistance from Hilltop Securities Inc., refinanced its outstanding Series 2012 Various Purpose Bonds to take advantage of favorable bond market conditions. The $5,880,000 refinancing will save District taxpayers $441,095 over the life of the bonds,  approximately 6.212% in present value savings The Series 2012 Bonds were originally a refinancing of the District’s Series 2003 Various Purpose Bonds. The 2012 refinancing resulted in gross debt service savings of $513,185 over the life of the bonds. In total, the two refunding bond issues have saved the Joseph Badger Local School District taxpayers $954,280 over the life of the bonds. The Board of Education, Superintendent Baldwin, and Treasurer Sciola want to take every opportunity to reduce taxes to the constituents they serve, and with favorable bond market conditions, this refinancing provided a great opportunity to save money for the community.
