75 Years of Excellence in Education

The Cuyahoga Heights School District, which serves the villages of Cuyahoga Heights, Brooklyn Heights and Valley View, is a first ring school district located approximately 4 miles from mid-town Cleveland. The Cuyahoga Heights School District is fortunate in many ways.

The villages of Cuyahoga Heights, Brooklyn Heights and Valley View all have healthy tax bases, are attractive to businesses and provide terrific amenities to their residents. A superb quality of life is the major reason that living in one of the three villages is attractive.

Community support is a cornerstone to the district’s success. Besides supporting school levies and volunteering in classrooms, residents enjoy using the 25-meter pool, children’s pool, spa, first-rate fitness center, and state-of-the-art track at no charge.

Over 950 students are enrolled in the district’s three schools—high school (9-12), middle school (6-8), elementary school (PreK-5)—located on the same campus. They benefit from the expertise of a highly qualified teaching staff, excellent support staff, and strong parental participation.

The Cuyahoga Heights Schools provide a full-range of traditional and non-traditional educational programs and co-curricular activities. These include elementary and secondary curriculum offerings at the general and college preparatory levels and special education programs.

Ninety-percent of CHS graduates attend either a 2-year or 4-year college. With over 74 co-curricular activities and 21 varsity sports, a very high percentage of students are involved with extracurricular activities. Please visit our website for up-to-date information.
