All students take language arts, math, social studies, science, health, art, physical education, music, and computer exploration.

Working with others is a key concept that is especially stressed at Woodbury, as well as organization and independence.

Woodbury Elementary School also has an excellent science program, including bi-weekly visits to a lab so that students can perform experiments that allow them to see and experience the concepts being taught.

The primary focus of Saint Ignatius High School is to be a college-preparatory school, academic excellence has been the core value since the school’s foundation in 1886. A challenging curriculum, master teachers, and an emphasis on clear thinking and communication skills are all tools used to produce the best and brightest students. As important as academics are, the spiritual development program offered to students is what truly separates Saint Ignatius High School from similar schools. The school respects all faiths, but primarily is a Catholic school defined by Jesuit traditions. This emerges through a four year theology program, annual retreats, frequent liturgies, and opportunities to serve those in need. Located near downtown Cleveland, the school occupies 23 acres, and includes 19 buildings and three athletic fields. The school also has 120 faculty members, almost all of which hold advanced degrees, and more than half of which have been at Saint Ignatius at least 10 years. The core tenant of Saint Ignatius is that the purpose of education is to allow students to answer to the question, “What does God want from me?” The classes and extracurriculars across the curriculum allow students to develop those tools and learn to use them appropriately.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cleveland District Curriculum
The Math curriculum in the schools of Cleveland Metropolitan School District goes beyond teaching basic math and algebra skills; the goal of the math curriculum is to create students who can think critically and solve problems. The Science curriculum is closely linked to the Math curriculum, as students apply recently learned mathematics skills to their science discoveries. The Science curriculum includes six areas, for each grade level. Content areas are: earth science, life science, physical science, technology, scientific inquiry, and scientific ways of knowing.
Cleveland Metropolitan School District fosters literacy and communication skills through its Language Arts curriculum. One area of emphasis is encouraging children to read books that are relevant to their own times. The summer reading list, for example, is primarily composed of recently published books, in the hopes that their relevant topics will encourage children to discuss and actively learn. The school district promotes active involvement on the part of students.

About Cleveland, Ohio
Cleveland, Ohio is the county seat of Cuyahoga County; Cleveland is relatively large, covering an area of 213.6 km2 . Cleveland has a population of 388,072, and is the 51st most populous city in the United States, and the second largest city in Ohio. Cleveland is hailed as a manufacturing center, due to its location on both the river and the lake shore. Cleveland is also connected to many canals and railroad lines. The economy in Cleveland relies on many different sectors, such as manufacturing, financial services, healthcare, and biomedicals. Cleveland is also the poster child for revitalizing an older industrial city. This was achieved through spending in education and economic development of the inner city, as well as investments in the medical field and arts.
Cleveland was a relatively small town, when the Ohio-Erie Canal opened, which connected the Cuyahoga river to the Great Lakes. This caused a boom in population, and the city developed into a transportation hub due to the opportune location and proximity to the great lakes. After the first world war, Cleveland was the fifth largest city in the United States. Since then, Cleveland has diversified the economy a lot, due to a recent recession. As of the census of 2010, there were 396,698 people, 167,490 households, and 89,821 families residing in the city. The population density was 5,107.0 inhabitants per square mile (1,971.8/km2). There were 207,536 housing units at an average density of 2,671.0 per square mile (1,031.3/km2). The median age in the city was 35.7 years. 24.6% of residents were under the age of 18; 11% were between the ages of 18 and 24; 26.1% were from 25 to 44; 26.3% were from 45 to 64; and 12% were 65 years of age or older. The gender makeup of the city was 48.0% male and 52.0% female.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was founded in 1983, and Cleveland was chosen as the permanent home in 1986. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognizes a select few bands, producers, engineers, and other notable figures that contributed to the development and history of Rock and Roll. Cleveland was chosen as the location because it is often hailed as the birthplace of Rock and Roll. The first “real” rock and roll concert was held there, and a local radio station has been given credit for several acts gaining mass appeal, such as Rush, David Bowie, and Bruce Springsteen. Cleveland was also chosen by popular vote, not once, but twice. In the museum itself, there are exhibits dedicated to certain popular artists, such as Elvis, and also exhibits dedicated to things like stories, gallaries, theaters, history, and more.

The Cleveland Museum of Art was founded in 1913, with the goal of helping the largest possible audience understand and engage with the world’s greatest art while maintaining the highest aesthetic, professional, and intellectual standards. The first museum director believed in the museum as an educational institution, and under his leadership, the museum established a large set of educational programs for children and adults alike. The Cleveland Museum of Art promises to create a “transformative experience through art, for the benefit of all the people, forever.” They aim to be a global leader among museums, and to offer dynamic experiences that illuminate the power and enduring relevance of art in the global society of today. The museum builds, preserves, studies, and shares the outstanding collection of art from all periods and places that it now holds. It generates new scholarship and understanding, and serves as a social and intellectual hub. For more information, please visit their website here.

Chalk Talk: Nutrition to Maximize Learning Potential
The learning capabilities of a student depend, in part, upon the nutrition that he or she receives. Students will have the longest attention span and the greatest opportunity to learn when they follow the ten-step plan promoted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. This plan includes eating fruits and vegetables, lean protein, whole grains, dairy. The USDA recommends smaller plates to control portion size, avoiding fats, eating slowly, and eating home-made food.
