I hope your summer was restful and refreshing. We look forward to continuing our partnership with our wonderful parents/guardians. Our mission is to prepare our students for real-world success by providing all students with a personalized relevant and rigorous education. Our vision is to prepare, push and produce students that will be competitive in a global economy, critical/divergent thinkers and problem solvers, and students that are capable of thriving in diverse environments.
This year we are focusing on creating equity by building independent learners. Studies have shown that students who take ownership of their learning and know-how to navigate the system fare much better in our academic environment. We want to teach students how to navigate Cleveland through collegial collaboration, student voice, and problem-solving. We will also continue to focus on improving our student engagement through rigorous project-based learning and culturally responsive teaching methods. We know that authentic, rigorous, well-scaffolded projects with connections to life experiences outside of school will eliminate opportunity gaps and boost deeper learning for all students.
Finally, we are committed to improving family engagement by listening to parents and improving our methods of communication with parents. Currently, information is available
- through our website: which communicates news and updates and includes contact information for school staff,
- through Remind app: there is a general school account that parents can sign up for, as well as its widespread use by teachers in classrooms,
- through social media feeds provided by Cleveland Publications—Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram all have a steady feed of school news as well as the opportunity to message C-Pub directly with questions.
We are happy to announce that Cleveland’s graduation rate has continued to improve from 67 percent five years ago to over 91 percent in the 2017-18 school year. This is the 6th consecutive year of Cleveland High School receiving the School of Distinction Award, a state-wide award recognizing schools that made the greatest gains in academic outcomes for students. We have more students enrolling in four-year universities than ever before.
Cleveland Eagles keep soaring because the sky is not the limit but the foundation!
