    "We meet you where you are and take you where you need to be" 

    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. We call ourselves "The School of One" because every student is on their own individual path. 

    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 operates as one collective high school. However, our student population is distributed amongst 9 sites located around Cleveland. This allows students to attend the site closest to where they live. Students are welcome to attend any of our 9 sites and can transfer to another site if needed. 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, John Adams, Bard Early College, and James Ford Rhodes High Schools. Our Main Office is located inside Bard Early College (13501 Terminal Ave, Room 103, Cleveland) and our Lincoln-West site is now located inside City Life Center (3340 Trowbridge Ave, Cleveland).  

    We are fortunate to have opened 3 more innovative sites. These sites are similar to our others in that they have rolling applications, small classroom sizes, and computerized learning.  However, each one has a specialized focus on meeting the needs of the students who attend there.  Our 8th site is located at MCPc (4371 Pearl Rd, Cleveland).. Students at this site have the opportunity to learn about rowing and sailing  and also have an opportunity for employment at MCPc, in addition to their core academics.  We also have a site located inside the LGBT Community Center in Gordon Square.  This site will be fully integrated with the Center's programming in addition to providing students with their core academics. Our most recent site is at MAGNET, where students will receive their education while also learning about manufacturing!
