Dear Cleveland High School Family:

Welcome to the 2016-17 school year.  I hope your summer was restful and rejuvenating.  We are really looking forward to receiving your students and continuing our partnership with our wonderful parents/guardians. 

This year we are focusing on the school’s mission and vision.  Our mission is to prepare our students for real world success by providing all students with a personalized relevant and rigorous education.  Our vision is to prepare, push and produce students that will be competitive in a global economy, critical/divergent thinkers and problem solvers, and students that are capable of thriving in diverse environments.

We are happy to announce that Cleveland’s graduation rate has continued to improve from 67% three years ago to over 87% in 2015-16 school year.   This is the third consecutive year  of Cleveland High School receiving the School of Distinction Award, which recognizes schools that made the greatest gain in the content areas of mathematics and reading.   We have more students enrolling and being accepted to a four-year universities than ever before.  Finally, more students continue to take and pass AP exams in math and science.

We would like to welcome a few new staff members in the subject areas of Humanities, Math, Computer Science, Ell/ELD, Special Education, Academic Intervention Specialist, Dean of Students, Spanish, and Instructional Assistants.

Please note the important dates coming up for the month of September and October.
