Our Goals

Together, we can make a difference


School is about becoming. Growing up. Maturing. Transforming. When a student finally moves beyond an 'educational step' he should no longer be who he once was. He should be better. And if I had to say one thing about my time at Maumee High School it would be this—it made me better. I became a better learner. A better son. A better teammate. A better friend.

The administrators, teachers, and coaches at Maumee High School cared about what I learned but they seemed to know that learning was in the service of becoming and it was to that goal they seemed most committed. Thanks to them when it was time for me to move beyond the “educational step” of high school I was no longer who I was when I started—I was better. I like to think my time as a panther started me on a trajectory of becoming. Becoming a better me. And I’m grateful."

Maumee High School

Class of 1998


Our foundation was created to meet the needs of our students and community.

We strive to achieve the following goals:

Ensure Maumee High School has the resources needed to educate the whole student. 
Students need to graduate with the skills to thrive as tomorrow’s leaders, employees and citizens in a rapidly changing global environment. To prepare, they need to engage in critical thinking, problem solving, communication, collaboration, innovation, team work and creativity. Our academic environment must provide new and different approaches – and funding – to meet these needs.

Inspire a lifelong love of learning and a commitment to serving the community. 
Community service is a core value in our district, in addition to academics, athletics, arts and music. Making education meaningful our children by connecting their classroom learning with the broader context of citizenship within the community will have long-term positive effects for all of us.

Stay competetive with other high schools in order to at tract families to the community. 
Quality schools attract families – and families are the life of every community. Therefore it is imperative that we invest in programs and facilities to remain one of our city’s great attractions to current and future residents.

Put our best face forward. 
We offer high-quality academics, arts and athletics. Yet some of our facilities would suggest otherwise. The natural “first impression” point of the school for many visitors – the stadium – does not provide an attractive, welcoming greeting to visitors. 

Support local property values and quality of life. 
When schools flourish, so do communities. Competitive, high-performing schools attract homebuyers and create a desirable environment that helps drive up property values. Maumee is a great place to buy a home and live, thanks to the schools, businesses and community spirit championed by our residents.

Provide an opportunity to give back
There are many loyal,  committed alumni and community members who are eager to support the high school philanthropically and are eager to find ways  to do so. The Panther Pride Foundation provides a vehicle for them to do so.
