Advisory Teams are made up of a small group of students and a teacher. They are a place where students make plans: for school, for college, for their careers and for their futures. This is a safe time to talk about barriers and needs; to be serious, but to have fun, too. Advisories are helping students build academic and social skills by breaking down barriers, fostering relationships, strengthening listening skills and, most important, building trust.
CPS' My Tomorrow Initiative
My Tomorrow is a new vision of education for CPS in which every student is prepared for the remarkable future racing straight at us.
At CPS, we aim to ensure all of our students graduate from high school ready for the career paths of their choice. That's why all of our schools offer coursework that challenges and engages our students. We follow Ohio's Learning Standards to ensure our students at all grade levels build the skills and knowledge they need to be college and career ready.
CPS offers enrichment programs for students who are identified as gifted. Visit the CPS website for general information about the district's gifted programs. Learn about Cheviot School’s Gifted Academy.
Monitoring Academics and Testing
Students in Cincinnati Public Schools are tested throughout the school year to determine knowledge and skill levels. These tests measure students’ achievement to determine strengths and weaknesses so teachers can adjust instruction to meet students’ needs.
Special education and related services are offered to children ages three through twenty-one in public and non-public schools. Visit the CPS website to learn more about our programs and services.
Third-Grade Reading Guarantee
Ohio's Third Grade Reading Guarantee aims to ensure that struggling young readers get the support needed to improve.
Activities Beyond the Classroom provides support to our primary-grade students both during the day and after school. A team of qualified tutors meets with students in small groups to provide reading and math instruction. The lessons are tailored to each student’s needs.
