Daniel E. Morgan preschool earns top rating


Daniel E. Morgan





The preschool at Daniel E. Morgan PreK-8 School, located near East 90th Street and Superior Avenue, has earned the state's maximum five-star rating for quality.

High-quality preschool is just one of the many strategies outlined in The Cleveland Plan, a customized blueprint for education reform in the city. Preschool is a critical time in brain formation and development of skills like communication and teamwork.

Step Up To Quality, Ohio's voluntary rating system, inspects preschools for characteristics that include learning and development, administrative and leadership practices, staff qualifications and professional development, and family and community partnerships.

So far, 50 of CMSD's 63 preschool sites have earned five-star ratings from the program. The rest are expected to follow.
