CMSD to add third school based on IB model

Ajayi Monell came to Cleveland from Georgia three years ago and embraced CMSD's practice of letting families pick their schools. Now he has an opportunity to market one of the District’s newest options. 

Monell is principal of the new William Rainey Harper School, which will start with preschool through third grade when it opens next month in the Old Brooklyn neighborhood. Harper will be the third CMSD school to follow the International Baccalaureate model, joining Campus International K-8 and Campus International High School.

Campus K-8, based at Cleveland State University, perennially ranks as the District's most popular choice, with seats filled by lottery and other students placed on a waiting list.  Adding Harper will expand CMSD families’ access to the IB model.

Harper will stress an inquiry method of instruction, permitting students to take control of their learning, raise questions, research answers and benefit from the mistakes they make along the way. To that will be added the International Baccalaureate model's global perspective and recognition of how a student's actions, even locally, can impact the world.  

"My vision for William Rainey Harper is to make it a major place of learning not just for the kids but for the teachers, staff and the community," said Monell, who previously was assistant principal at Riverside School. "I've told people I want this to be the Disneyland of schools here."  


Army of Believers tickets still available

Time remains to buy tickets for CMSD’s 11thannual Army of Believers Scholarship Luncheon, to be held at noon on Friday, Aug. 3, 2018 at the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel on Public Square.

The luncheon raises money for scholarships awarded to CMSD seniors based on academic achievement and community service. At this year’s luncheon, 19 seniors will receive $5,000 scholarships.

CMSD also will honor four “5-star generals” for contributions to the District. The group includes Dr. Ronald M. Berkman, president emeritus of Cleveland State University; Dr. Frank A. Fecser, chief executive officer of the Positive Education Program; Dr. Robert L. Haynie, associate dean for student affairs and associate clinical professor emeritus at the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine; and Dr. Kenneth W. Chalker, retired pastor of University Circle United Methodist Church.

Marsha A. Mockabee, president and CEO of the Urban League of Greater Cleveland, and August A. Napoli Jr., president and CEO of the United Way of Greater Cleveland are honorary co-chairs.

Ticket prices range from $100 for an individual ticket to $5,000, which covers VIP seating for 10, prominent program recognition and the donor’s name and logo in the printed program.

Reservations are requested by Wednesday, July 25.
