Imagine a premier, college-preparatory high school that attracts college-bound, high-achieving students from throughout Cuyahoga County. Envision a school that has earned an Excellent rating on the Ohio Report Card for 12 straight years. Picture a school ranked No. 1 in Northeast Ohio on the 2013 Ohio Graduation Test.
That’s Cleveland Early College High School @ John Hay, and it’s just the beginning.
