Cleveland School began this week with a very enthusiastic and cohesive team and positive new spirit. What we do need however, is greater parental involvement; spread the word! With everyone working together, we will certainly make this year 'The Year' of great success with new and exciting opportunities and adventures awaiting all our children!

As a third grade teacher at Cleveland, I am committed to the emotioanl, social and academic development of all of our students. I believe in every child's ability to succeed, and look forward to a great school year under new and enthusiastic leadership. The school culture is changing and I am proud to be a part of the Cleveland family!

My children were new to the district last year. My daughter was in 3rd grade. There were 2 full time, fully acredited teachers and a full time teachers aid in the class room. There were 17 students. EXCELLENT Ratio! The staff is working hard to make it better but you are right, the district lacks parent involvment. The same 20 or so people show up at the PTO meetings every month.

Most teachers at this school are not completely certified and/or not contracted. The real student teacher ratio is about 20-1.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
