Meet Ruth

We are Ruth & Kyle Arbaugh, the proud owners of The Goddard School of Lewis Center and The Goddard School of Reynoldsburg. We have two young children who both attend Goddard and have dedicated our lives to the education and care of young children. As owners we bring a unique education and business background to our Schools. Ruth was the Dean of a private elementary school and elementary school teacher for over a decade before we joined the Goddard family. She has a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education and a minor in Human Development and Family Studies from Penn State University as well as additional certification from Harvard University and Yale University. Kyle grew up in Northeast Ohio and spent 15 years as a technology entrepreneur. Prior to our Goddard School ownership his most recent venture was a financial education platform. He attended Ohio Northern University and has a Bachelors of Science in Business Management and Marketing. Our passion is to build a School that helps develop young minds and create a welcoming community for all our parents, students and teachers.

What Teachers Mean to Me

Every member of the Goddard faculty has special, often extraordinary, gifts they share with their students. When a child comes home happy and can't wait to see their teacher the next day, tell us about it. Take this moment to celebrate your child's teachers!
