Our Pride

  • Buhrer is home to the first dual language education program in Ohio. All classes are taught in English and Spanish, and Buhrer students become proficient in both. They also graduate with high school credit in Spanish I. While Buhrer is unique in its two-language approach, it uses widely accepted methods that spur student achievement in all subjects, including math and science.

    Our vision is for all students to learn in a rigorous 21st century academic community that enriches the development of the whole child, both academically and social-emotionally, achieving high academic performance in both Spanish and English in all core subjects within a positive and collaborative multicultural environment.

    Our mission is to provide opportunities for Cleveland children to: 

    • develop the child as a whole, both academically and social-emotionally.
    • develop a cross-cultural understanding and collaboration strategies.
    • develop fluency in Spanish/English through bilingual education. 


    In order to get the correct supplies, if you do not know the teacher for Kindergarten, 5th and 6th grade, please email Mrs. Michele Sanchez for the correct teacher and schedule.
