    FIRST RING DISTRICTS STAND TOGETHER
    REGARDING INJUSTICES THAT HAVE OCCURRED & CONTINUE TO OCCUR ACROSS OUR NATION.

     

    The following is a public statement that I and 15 Superintendents in our First Ring Schools Collaborative of districts around Cleveland feel is necessary to make regarding the injustices that have occurred and continue to occur across our Country and our commitment to ALL do better.  I stand firmly behind these commitments and I hope you will do the same.

    -Dr. Charles T. Keenan, Superintendent

    A collective of superintendents that serve communities that border Cleveland, Ohio, the First Ring Schools Collaborative seeks to improve the education of our students so that they can experience life-long success.  We draw on our collective strength to collaborate, problem-solve and advocate for our school communities.

    Recent events in America have been a devastating reminder of the obstacles that our students, particularly our African American students, face.  Acts of violence against George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor underscore the intransigent problem of race and discrimination that continue to cripple the progress and spirit of our country. 

    We condemn these acts and join the chorus of voices across the public and private sector that are demanding systemic change to address the brutal acts of violence against Black and Brown people in America.  Each of these acts is an assault not only on the individuals, their families and communities, they are also an assault on the soul of our country and the ideals that we seek to instill in our students.  Our hearts weep for the families of the victims.  Our hearts are heavy knowing that our students are profoundly affected by what we are all experiencing.

    The First Ring Schools Collaborative remains committed to ensuring that barriers are eliminated in order to assure all of our students receive the resources and support that they need to succeed at the highest levels as they matriculate through our school systems. We will continue to work in concert to identify and dismantle systems in Ohio that are an obstacle to our students' success.

The Board of Education

School Board members are elected officials who devote many hours setting policies and planning for your public schools. We serve on the School Board because we care about providing quality education in our community. Popular control of public education is one of the cornerstones of a free society. The people exercise that control through their Board of Education. We appreciate your interest and comments and ask your participation to help us meet that goal.

The Maple Heights Board of Education encourages school staff and community members to attend its meetings.

About the District/History
The Maple Heights City School District is one of 612 school districts in the State of Ohio and one of 31 school districts in Cuyahoga County. The School District provides education to approximately 3,800 students in pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade. Additionally, the School District provides pre-school and other services to its students.

The Maple Heights City School District is located in Northeastern Ohio approximately 13 miles southeast of the City of Cleveland. The Maple Heights City School District encompasses the entire City of Maple Heights. The School District was originally part of Bedford Township. The U.S. Census in 1923, revealed that Maple Heights was populous enough to be legally separated from the County School System and be classified by the State of Ohio as an exempted village school district.
 

The first Maple Heights Board of Education was organized in 1924 during which, forty-five students began their high school studies in the old town hall. By 1928, school officials recognized the need for a larger high school. Clement which had opened in 1925, was selected to be the site of the high school which opened in 1931. By 1930, the population of Maple Heights had reached 5,950. Four public schools were in operation with an enrollment of 1,188 pupils and a staff of forty teachers. What was once Maple Grove dedicated in 1933, then came to be known as Granger School.

 

Presently, there are five newer school buildings in the District, one high school (grades 9-12), one middle school (grades 6-8) and three grade-level elementary schools.  The Board of Education and central office staff is currently housed in the former Rockside Elementary School building.
