Westwood Campus

CPS' Westwood Campus (formerly Mercy High School)

Westwood CampusCincinnati Public Schools purchased the former Mercy High School building in Cincinnati’s Westwood neighborhood to accommodate the district’s growing enrollment.

CPS Superintendent Laura Mitchell said the District plans for the new school community to open in August 2019. She’s described her vision is to create an innovative educational campus that creates new opportunities for students and addresses significant enrollment growth, particularly on Cincinnati’s West Side.

The CPS Board of Education will hold a series of community engagement sessions during the fall of 2018 to hear from students, families, and community members about the future school community.

Below you’ll find updates on the development of the Westwood Campus.

Westwood Campus ThoughtExchange

Cincinnati Public Schools will be opening a new school community in the former Mercy High School building in the Fall of 2019. This is a once in a generation opportunity to create a new innovative educational campus to the West Side at a historic location that had meant so much to the community.

In order to get as much input from the community as possible, CPS has launched an online ThoughtExchange. We’re asking CPS students, parents and community stakeholders to share important things to consider for our new school community. Please provide input about what education and the campus could look like to support student success. We also want to hear your thoughts about how the school can continue its connection to the local community. Your responses will help us think about how to bring this opportunity to life and educate the next generation of our children.
