A view of our community from the eyes of our students!

The Coventry Local Schools are located south of Akron, Ohio in the Portage Lakes area of Summit County.  The population of Coventry Township is approximately 11,000 residents, and is comprised of 9.8 square miles.

Coventry Township is governed by a three-member board of trustees and a township clerk who oversee the operation of the Fire Department, Road Department, and Parks/Zoning Inspector.  Police Protection is provided by the Summit County Sheriff.

Portage Lakes State Park is made up of all the lakes surrounding our community.  The area is named after the old Indian portage path which connects the Cuyahoga River, which flows north to Lake Erie, and the Tuscarawas River which flows south to the Ohio River.

The Coventry Local Schools consist of one high school (grades 9 - 12), one middle school (grades 5-8), one elementary school (grades K-4).  Students at the high school level may choose to attend the Portage Lakes Career Center for vocational training.
