Cleveland Municipal


The Cleveland Municipal School District operates 94 schools, including 58 elementary schools, 15 high schools, and 21 alternative schools, serving students from pre-K through 12th grade. The district as a whole faces significant challenges, ranking in the bottom 20% of Ohio districts and earning a 1-out-of-5-star rating from SchoolDigger.

However, a few standout schools demonstrate that high-quality education is possible within the district. Campus International School and Douglas MacArthur elementary schools perform significantly better than the district average, with higher proficiency rates in core subjects. At the high school level, Cleveland School of Science & Medicine and Cleveland School of the Arts High School stand out with impressive 4-year graduation rates of 98.9% and 98.0%, respectively.

Across the district, chronic absenteeism appears to be a major driver of poor academic outcomes, with many schools reporting rates over 50%. Racial disparities in enrollment and performance are also concerning, suggesting the need for targeted efforts to support students of color and ensure equitable access to high-quality education. While the data paints a challenging picture for the Cleveland Municipal School District, the exceptional performance of a few schools offers hope that with the right strategies and interventions, significant improvements are possible.
