A City on the Rise

In case you hadn’t heard, Cleveland is the place to be.

Our cosmopolitan downtown is booming. We are reinventing our local economy for the 21st century. Talented young professionals from across the country are flocking to Cleveland.

Make Cleveland Home

Clevelanders are fans. We come together out of love for our teams, our music, our art, our food. We have built a cultural epicenter to rival any in the country. We’ve also stayed true to our roots and kept our costs of living low. You can teach all day, hear one of the greatest orchestras in the world in the evening, and enjoy waterfront nightlife after. In Cleveland, you can do all of that and still afford to own your home and support a family.

Cleveland’s Plan for Transforming Schools

Our entire community has committed to improving Cleveland schools. In 2012, voters passed Issue 107, the District’s first new operating levy in 16 years. They asked for dramatic change, and they pledged their full financial and political support.

Thanks to the voters’ support and The Cleveland Plan, a state-approved, customized blueprint for reform, CMSD has the resources and the vision to become a national model for excellence in urban education. We have launched a portfolio model for our schools so that all children have access to high quality educational options. We have created an Investment Schools plan for turning around low-performing schools. We are attracting the country’s top talent to drive excellence. Every single day, our teachers and leaders are taking big risks to do things that have never been done before, and they do so knowing that the entire CMSD and Cleveland community has their backs.

A District on the Rise

Under The Cleveland Plan, CMSD has become the next proof point for reinventing public education. We are showing what it takes to turn around an entire urban school district. In the last three years, graduation rates have risen by 12.1 percentage points, reaching their highest level ever. We are bringing an entrepreneurial mindset to our schools and creating an entire system where all kids—regardless of income, race, language, or disability—can grow to their fullest potential. At CMSD, you can be part of the district that is primed to lead the nation.
