The School of One is dedicated to producing successful graduates by offering students a differentiated, individualized digital online educational experience embedded with both the academic and social and emotional services needed to be college and career ready in the 21st Century.
To help students who seek an individualized approach to graduation in a nontraditional classroom setting, the staff at the School of One works collaboratively with each student to identify academic needs, areas of interests and personal barriers and strives to eliminate them. Teachers and students collaborate to develop a new path to academic, personal and social and emotional success.
The School of One is considered one collective high school, however our student population is distributed amongst 8 sites located around Cleveland. This allows for students to attend the site closest to where they live. Each site consists of a single classroom within the main building and has a School of One teacher and paraprofessional, as well as support staff. Those locations are: Collinwoood, East Tech, Glenville, John Adams, Lincoln-West, and James Ford Rhodes High Schools. Our John Marshall site is located next to our main office behind Nathaniel Hawthorne. Our 8th and newest site is located at The Foundry, Cleveland's rowing facility. Students at our Foundry site learn about rowing and sailing and have a work component, in addition to their core academics.
Cleveland’s public schools have a long way to go but are gathering momentum, CEO Eric Gordon said Thursday in the annual State of the Schools address.
Ten District teachers have learned that they have won this year’s Excellence in Teaching Award. The honor goes to teachers who demonstrate instructional expertise, creativity and innovation and set an example for their peers.
