Great school. First class academics, teachers that really care about student development, sports, music, art. Best school on the west side of Cleveland if you want the best for your child regardless of your religious affiliation. They do have financial aid too.

Great School - It has above average academics and teachers that care and are willing to invest in your students success. Also has many extra curricular activities, again with leaders & coaches that care. Outstanding environment to help a child grow and develop.
