CPS is Ohio's fastest-growing district, with enrollment up more than 20 percent since 2012-13.
CPS offers families high-quality educational choices and a variety of academic programs. Our innovative approach to education, an investment in effective and caring teachers, and a vast array of collaborative partnerships have accelerated students' achievement to the highest level in decades — ensuring that students thrive and graduate prepared to enter college, the military and the work force.
Three CPS high schools — Walnut Hills High School, Withrow University High School and Clark Montessori High School — are ranked among the top 1,000 public high schools in the United States, according to national magazines. In 2010, the U.S. Department of Education awarded Robert A. Taft Information Technology High School a National Blue Ribbon for excellence.
