Is your child starting at Cleveland in 2017?
Information for New Families!


Cleveland Elementary is a diverse and high-performing school, united around the shared values of Inclusiveness and Responsibility. Our extraordinary students and experienced staff work hard together to produce the impressive academic gains our students make every year.  
In 2015 and 2016, Cleveland was one of only three OUSD schools featured for high performance in English and Math on the Innovate Public Schools' list of Top Bay Area Schools.  The annual list recognizes Bay Area schools that exceed state standards in achievement for low-income Latino and African-American students. We are committed to the success of all our students!
Cleveland students are offered a rigorous and balanced approach to literacy and common core-aligned curriculum in all subject areas. Our high expectations are supported with structured interventions and academic acceleration for all students, including language learners and students with special needs.
Our positive behavior systems are specifically designed to facilitate social and emotional well-being and maintain a safe campus so that all students can access our curriculum.
Cleveland students enjoy weekly enrichment experiences, including:

*  Ecoliteracy programs in our innovative outdoor classroom and gardens
*  Art Instruction from Museum of Children's Arts (MOCHA)
*  Music with Cantare con Vivo, Living Jazz, and String Instrument Lessons for 4th- and 5th-graders
*  Physical Education classes weekly
Our students also have access to quality resources, including our two libraries and set of laptops. When an entire community comes together to support our children, a transformational education experience takes place.

We're located at the top of a big hill in the Cleveland Heights area, just a few blocks from beautiful Lake Merritt.  Our friendly neighborhood is diverse and vibrant.  Come visit Cleveland and see the magic in action!
