Our vibrant city on the Ohio River is a great place to work and live! One of the nation’s best-kept secrets, Cincinnati combines rich history, beautiful parks, and a variety of recreational and cultural activities with the excitement of young business start-ups, revitalized city neighborhoods and inviting entertainment districts, plus major league and college sports teams.
We love what we do because we do it in a city that values children. Thanks to our community, all of our schools have been rebuilt or fully renovated since 2003 into "green" buildings that are technology-ready learning environments. Our schools are Community Learning Centers, focused on creating partnerships for academic enrichment, and health and recreational opportunities for students and families beyond school hours.
Cincinnati Public Schools innovates to meet students' needs and our changing world.
Our new My Tomorrow initiative, launched August 2014, is a bold reimaging of classroom teaching. Our goal: Ensuring that 100 percent of seventh-graders graduate on time and are ready to actively pursue college and chosen career paths. Key features of My Tomorrow include cutting-edge technology, higher academic expectations and supportive adult relationships.
