The Best Public Schools in NE Ohio   (Cleveland, Akron. Canton)

Saying “best” can be tricky, just ask any media outlet that has an annual Best of List and and then gets backlash for 30 days asreaders weigh in with their favorites or critiques. So, we will qualify this blog posting of “best public schools in NE Ohio” by saying that we know this is subjective and there are many variables, however, after more than 30 years working day in and day out with executive level recruits who are transitioning into Cleveland, Akron & Canton, we have come to know the public schoools that can be recommended with little hesitation and that appeal to our core client.  Below is the list of the public schools that have the right combination of:

  • administrators & teachers who work to integrate new students transitioning into the district
  • are located in suburbs with plenty of $300,000+ housing stock (our typical client)
  • suburbs that have a nice mix of natives and transplants so newcomers blend in easily
  • have a healthy dose of white collar professionals as residents
  • are roughly within a 30 minute commute to the business districts that our clients tend to populate
  • and are highly ranked on many different metrics by sources and ranking organizations such as:
    Ohio Department of Education “Report Card” (comes out every fall and shows how well public schools are using taxpayers dollars – can look up schools by name or city/county
    Cleveland Magazine’s Rating the Suburbs public school ratings
    US News & World Report’s annual Best Public High Schools
    Washington Post’s America’s Most Challenging High Schools
    Newsweek’s Best Public High Schools in America
