Public schools belong to all of us and they benefit all of us. An educated community is a healthier, happier, more prosperous, and safer place to live.  The Cleveland Heights-University Heights City School District is known as Tiger Nation. If you live, work, or own a business within the CH-UH school district, your taxes fund our public schools which makes you a Heights Tiger! No matter where you send your children to school, or if you have no children, you are a Heights Tiger! As a Heights Tiger, you are an investor in our public schools.

We invite everyone in the community to visit our schools, attend a public meeting, volunteer, or cheer for our athletes at a sporting event! Public schools function best when they have a synergistic relationship with the community they serve. 

community resources

Access to resources is critical for a healthy family. Reaching Heights has compiled a directory including local resources for basic needs, academic enrichment, mental and physical health, city and school district emergency contacts, and student camps. The Reaching Heights Resource Directory is accessible at each school or download a copy here. The Directory is updated twice a year and submissions can be made to Krista at Reaching Heights.

The Cleveland Heights-University Heights School District also offers community resource links on their website.
