It’s February in Northeast Ohio. The skies might be grey, but love is in the air and we can’t think of a better time to celebrate with a few “sneak peeks” into the 2020 Cleveland School Quality Guide, with print versions expected to be available throughout Cleveland next month.

Updated each year, the School Quality Guide includes information and ratings on all district and charter schools in Cleveland and is designed to help parents and families choose the “right fit” school for their child. Similar to the mycleschool.org school finder tool, the print Guide includes state ratings, photos, school quality resources, and community reviews.

The Cleveland schools listed below were identified in the 2020 School Quality Guide for the amount of academic growth made by their students.

Some of the ways Cleveland helps all students succeed are through individualized learning, a diverse portfolio of schools, and personalized services for students/families. This effort was expanded during the 2019-20 school year when Cleveland became the fourth Say Yes to Education school district in the United States.

This year, the following schools were designated as Say Yes core service schools, offering additional support for student/family concerns and connecting students with the “necessary services to succeed along the pathway to postsecondary education success.”
