Shaw High School provides an opportunity for students to combine academic and career classes. This is a wonderful experience not available at the average/general high school in the Greater Cleveland area. The students at Shaw High value school spirit and do not value their education in general. Thanks, Dr. MaryAnn Harris Former School Board Member East Cleveland City School District

I come from a Catholic private school that costs $10,000 a year to go to Shaw High School.The two schools are just as good, if not better.My science class, Chemistry, is more challenging and demanding than any of the classes that the juniors are taking at VASJ that over-charges by a mile.Now, for the school to have just been built, there are issues that are unexpected like a leaky roof and the heat doesn't go off in all of the classrooms.Of course there are more fights than in a private school because there are twice, if not three times as many students attending in an overcrowded school. At this school, I have a better chance at earning college creds to put me ahead by a year when I attend college.The fact is Shaw High is better than most would have you believe. Not to mention the success of the band!

The quality of education is lacking because the teacher can t teach because the disruption by the student and some the teacher is teaching student thing we learn already, but there are very few faculty members who care about the students and their success .There are not enough school books or other teaching materials available for the number of students who attend. So the student are learn not current thing. The extra curricular activities are what keep the students involved but not a lot. The school board takes every opportunity to hinder those programs sometime the event come to the school to see what up with the school. This is my last year and most school are focusing on there senior and our school is focusing on the sophomores, so the senior don t have no money except for like five hundred dollars and that is not going to cover the graduation.

The quality of education is lacking. The school board is composed of members who do not appear to care about the children in the district. There are not enough school books or other teaching materials available for the number of students who attend. There are very few faculty members who care about the students and their success. The extra curricular activities are what keep the students involved, however the school board takes every opportunity to hinder those programs. There is very little parent involvement in anything other than the marching band and possibly football. There is no parent involvement in the academic areas.

It would be hard to rate the staff at Shaw for just the purpose of their dedication as teachers they are a family , Our children in East Cleveland benefit in more ways than just having great academic instruction They are Loved, Jeanine King Mother of Veronica Lee King

I am not a parent but a former student from the E.Cleveland City School District and I have had the unfortunate oppourtunity to be enrolled in Cleveland Public Schools and a Charter School where the education I received was by all means worthless and terrible. Where E.Cleveland lacks in funding and money they make up for it with the best teachers who are dedicated and motivated. They offer a variety of extracurricular activities and while I was there parents really cared about their child's education. I wouldnt know how that is now though. I would recommend this school district to anyone searching for a school hoping for a better option than Cleveland Public Schools.

I attended school in the East Cleveland City School District my whole life and i believe that i recieved the best education possible.There they offer a number of after school activities and academic programs.The teachers and parents really care alot about the students and are always willing to go that extra mile so that it's students may succeed. I believe that they have given me all of the skills that i need to accomplish my dreams. I would truly say that attending East Cleveland City Schools was an experience that i wouldn't trade for anything.I was so involved in all of the activites and sports teams that they offered that it always kept me busy.It is just a great school district to attend.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Ohio used the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) to test students in grade 10 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. State averages displayed on public school profiles include public schools only. State averages displayed on private school profiles include private schools only. The OGT is a high school graduation requirement for public schools and chartered private schools. The OGT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Ohio. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

About the tests


Ohio uses the Performance Index to provide an overall indication of how well students perform on its standardized tests each year. The Performance Index scores are based upon how well each student does on all tested subjects in grades 3 through 8 and 10. Schools and districts earn anywhere from 1.2 points for each student scoring at the advanced level to zero points for each untested student. The Performance Index ranges between 0 and 120, with 100 as the statewide goal for all students.

No Value-Added data was reported for this school.

About the tests


In 2010-2011, the Ohio Department of Education used the Value-Added Measure to show how much growth students made on the Ohio Achievement Test since the last school year. The state expects that student test scores will show an average year's worth of growth compared to test scores from the previous year. Ohio's Value-Added Measure is not the same as Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), a federal measure which uses different criteria.

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.
