Cleveland Heights-University Heights City School District

For more than 100 years, the Cleveland Heights-University Heights City School District has been one of the most storied and successful school districts in Northeast Ohio.

We serve a vibrant, diverse community, made up of Cleveland Heights, University Heights, and a section of South Euclid. We educate more than 5,200 students each year, from Pre-Kindergarten through 12th Grade, in seven elementary schools, two middle schools, one high school, a career and technical education consortium, an alternative options school, an early childhood learning center and a school for students with emotional needs.

The CH-UH School District has long been known for providing exceptional academic programs that help prepare students of diverse abilities and backgrounds for lifelong success. We offer esteemed extracurricular activities at every grade level, including our world-renowned vocal and instrumental music programs, in addition to accomplished athletic teams.
The CH-UH School District employs a dedicated staff committed to helping all students achieve and excel. The District requires each school to develop a unique Academic Achievement Plan, which are included in the principals’ evaluations, thereby holding them accountable for their students’ successes and growth. CH-UH teachers work with the nation’s foremost educational experts during professional development days and strive throughout the year to enhance classroom experiences. 

Dedicated parents, family members, and school volunteers enrich the school-learning environment through their support. The Parent Teacher Association, Heights Schools Foundation, city governments, and many local non-profit organizations play a critical role in the District’s success.
