Thank you for choosing Cleveland for your child’s school! At Cleveland, our motto is Cleveland Rocks! Once you spend some time with us you will know why “we rock”. We are focused on creating a nurturing environment that supports a love of learning.

Our guiding principles are the foundation upon which our Positive School Climate (PSC) is built. We encourage, support, and guide our students in the principles of Respect, Responsibility, Peace, and Problem Solving.
