about :: history

The Cleveland School of the Arts is a specialty arts school of choice in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District that incorporates all aspects of the arts into its teaching approach.

Started in 1981, the school currently enrolls over 700 students in grades sixth through twelve. The school is distinguished by its strengths in both academics and arts. In addition to a college preparatory academic curriculum, all students participate in an arts curriculum of their choice: creative writing, dance, digital design & multimedia, instrumental and vocal music, theatre, or visual arts. Located in Cleveland’s University Circle, the school has easy access to the city’s major cultural institutions, enabling us to develop the strong artistic linkages necessary for success.
