6/12/2019 -- The Lincoln-West School of Science and Health -- the only high school in the country based in a hospital -- will graduate its first senior class on June 21. Now the hospital system and CMSD, with feedback from those new alumni, will focus on making a unique educational experience even better.
6/11/2019 -- The digital arts suite will give students a space where they can exercise creative expression or sharpen skills that turn into careers. Students will be able to record and mix music in a studio equipped by the nonprofit Notes for Notes, hone their deejay skills, record video in front of a green screen or work in a tech lab equipped with Mac computers and digital printers.
5/20/2019 -- With help from the school-wear company French Toast, SC4K will furnish uniforms and other clothing and school supplies for all students in kindergarten through third grade at the five schools, as well as supplies that teachers often buy for the children. The nonprofit will replenish the goods monthly.
5/21/2019 -- What do sewing, dancing, and NASA all have in common? They’re all after school clubs at the John Marshall Campus, and they collaborated for a very special project called “Leap with Light,” combining costume skills, complicated choreography and wearable technology.
5/20/2019 -- The Cleveland Cavaliers and Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. have built a new STEM lab where CMSD teachers will train to incorporate digital fabrication in instruction. The space, located at the East Professional Center, was a chemistry lab when the building, now used for professional development, was known as East High School.
5/17/2019 -- CMSD is entering another graduation season, but this season is unlike those that went before it. The Class of 2019 is the first whose graduates can qualify for Say Yes to Education scholarships, which cover gaps in tuition after deducting federal and state aid.
