Almira, Euclid Park preschools earn 5 stars





The preschools at Almira and Euclid Park schools have earned the state's top rating for quality.

That brings to 40 the number of CMSD preschool sites that have received five stars under the voluntary Step Up to Quality rating system. The remainder of CMSD’s 61 preschool sites will undergo evaluation in an attempt to do the same.

Through the PRE4CLE partnership, CMSD is working with private providers to make high-quality preschool available throughout the District.

Expanding access to high-quality preschool is one of the goals of The Cleveland Plan, a customized blueprint for education reform in the city. A rating of three stars or higher is considered high quality.

CMSD still has high-quality preschool seats available. To enroll your 4-year-old child – or a 3-year-old who will turn 4 before Jan. 31 – call CMSD's Early Childhood Education Department at 216-838-0110.
