20 schools named among America's healthiest

Twenty CMSD schools have received national recognition for their efforts to promote healthy practices.

The Alliance for a Healthier Generation ranked the group among America’s Healthiest Schools for 2019. The number is the largest yet for the District.

Marion C. Seltzer School earned a silver award, the second highest honor after gold.

The following schools received the bronze award: Harvey Rice, A.J. Rickoff, Sunbeam, Hannah Gibbons, Adlai Stevenson, Patrick Henry, Tremont, Anton Grdina, Nathan Hale, Glenville High School, Walton, Willson, R.G. Jones, Clark, Garfield, Almira, Douglas MacArthur GLA, Riverside and Miles Park.

The program, launched in 2006, evaluates the ways schools promote nutrition, health education and physical activity and create a healthy environment for students and staff. 

Garrett Morgan High School became the first school from the District and the first in Ohio to win gold when it received the honor in 2016.
