Rhodes School of Environmental Studies
is an innovative school with a focus on
life sciences and social sciences with the
strong support of local companies and
institutions like the Cleveland Metroparks
Zoo. We follow the CMSD year-round
calendar, and our students advance at
their own pace as they master content.
Flexible scheduling allows juniors and
seniors to take on internships and enroll
in courses at a community college.
All students can participate in sports
and other extracurricular activities at the
historic James Ford Rhodes campus in
the heart of Old Brooklyn.
