CLEVELAND, Ohio -- There's a new mood and energy in the hallways and classrooms of Collinwood High School.

Teachers and students are happier to be at school. The mood is more welcoming and less hostile. Everyone -- teachers and students alike -- are making better efforts at learning. That sounds like a glowing advertisement for the school, which has mostly-failing grades on the state report card, and for the district's efforts to make significant improvements there this year.
