Cleveland is a Title I school which now serves apporoximately 600 students in grades 4K through grade five. Working to realize its mission “to provide quality education for all students,” The Cleveland Academy of Leadership has focused additional time, efforts, and resources to ensure that all their students receive the education that will make them competitive in today’s global society.
We continue to focus on student leadership through The Leader in Me program and have an additional 20 instructional days which are used to focus on reading and math. We have been able to provide each student in grades 2, 3, 4 and 5 with a MacBook Air laptop computer and every K5 and 1st grade student with an Ipad.
