    Welcome to the Delphos City Schools located in Allen and Van Wert Counties. Delphos is a classic small town in NW Ohio with an excellent economic base highlighted by manufacturing, heath care, retail trade and agriculture. In the early years Delphos was a major port on the Miami and Erie Canal and key railroad hub.
