School tagline here.

  • Welcome to Mary Church Terrell School

    Mary Church Terrell School is a small, family oriented Pre-K - 8th grade school where teachers and scholars work together to create classrooms where all different types of learners can be an active part of their learning experience. The school is one of Cleveland's higher performing schools.  We are very proud of our 5 star Step Up to Quality rating for our Preschool Program. 

    The school has been open since 1929 and will continue to be a beacon for those who want a high quality education in a small family environment.  We are excited to announce that Mary Church Terrell School was named a SAY YES to Education School beginning this 2020-2021 school year.  We are eager to continue to support the families of all scholars.  We look forward to serving you and your scholars.
