Scranton is a highly effective PreK-8 school located on the West side near Tremont and Ohio City. We are staffed to serve a diverse population of young scholars, including a strong bilingual program. Our academic performance has steadily increased over the past five years. Scranton earned "A" ratings in all areas of value-added on the Ohio State Report Card, meaning that our scholars earned more than one year's worth of academic growth in 1 school year. Many of our classrooms are equipped with Smart boards, Elmo document cameras and computers in order to enhance each child's academic experience. Scranton is also equipped with a full computer lab that is used by all grade levels for the implementation of programs such as Study Island, Imagine Learning, ABC Mouse, First in Math and Accelerated Reader. We currently have 3 preschool classrooms, 1 full day and two half day.
At Scranton we strive to get our scholars involved in the entire school community. We have partnered with Horizon Education Centers in order to offer programming every day after school from 2:30 - 5:30. This programming includes karate, lego robotics, cooking, crafts, tutoring and more. We also have a boy's basketball team (2012/13 City Champs), cheerleading squad, track program, guitar club, girl scouts, student council and anti-bullying committee. In order to meet the needs of our scholars we offer tutoring during and after school, dental treatment, vision and glasses as well as counseling services. Your child will be safe with us!
11/9/2017 Ten award-winning CMSD teachers are reaping well-deserved congratulations. They also are planning ways to share their methods with peers across the District.
As winter begins in Cleveland, CMSD is committed to making sure parents and caregivers know right away if the District decides to close their child's school due to inclement weather.
On Wednesday September 20, 2017 we will be hosting our annual Donuts with Dads. We encourage fathers, stepfathers, foster fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, godfathers, cousins, and other significant male caregivers to take their children to school. Men who support the Fathers Walk should arrive with their children at the school 15 to 30 minutes before the starting bell. When men are involved in the educational lives of their children, children perform better in school. We will begin letting parents in the building at 7:15 a.m. and the breakfast will end at 7:50 a.m.
