History of Schools in Cleveland

by Laura Hine

  • Before 1814 - One of the first schools in the city of Cleveland was taught by Miss Sarah Doan in what was then known as the Kingsbury neighborhood near the corner of Kinsman and Woodland Heights Avenues. Another early school was mentioned in 1814 with a Mr. Capman being the teacher.
  • 1817 - The Village of Cleveland returned money to subscribers. This money was meant to be used for a school house. At this time the Village of Cleveland became the sole proprietor of the school. The school building was located on St. Clair in the lot that now occupies Kennard House. The building was owned by Cleveland but the school was not free. The population grew and a new school was later built across the street. This school was known as Cleveland Academy and was completed in 1821.
  • 1825 - A young ladies academy was established
  • 1833-1834 - A Sunday School was organized in the old Bethel Church. It was supported by voluntary contributions and was a charity school called "The Free School"
  • 1836 - The first Public School was held in the old Bethel Chapel in 1836, at the corner of Diamond and Superior Street hill. This was for the poor only.
  • 1836 - A system of public education was adopted when the City Charter was organized. Before this date, schools were supported by private enterprise. Cleveland voted to continue the free school being held in the Bethel Chapel - known as the Ragged School. The first principal was R.L. Gazlay. The number of students attending this school in 1836 was 229. In October of 1836, the Board of Managers was appointed. They began their work but had not as yet passed any ordinance establishing a "school system".
  • 1837 - Ordinance passed to establish common schools and have the school committee lease buildings for school purposes (3 schools founded at this time)
  • 1837/1838 - The report from the Board of Managers stated that at the commencement of last year the Bethel Free School was in operation, supported by the city. It had two departments, one for boys and one for girls. There were 140 pupils eligible to attend and average attendance was 90.
  • By November of 1837, there were now six schools in three wards
  • By April of 1838, there were now eight schools with 468 people attending
  • By May of 1838, there were 9 schools and 823 people attending
  • By October of 1838, there were 840 people attending
  • 1839 - Cleveland purchased the Academy Building that they had previously rented. There were other schools in rented rooms and small buildings. One school was in a room in the Farmer's Block (now the Cleveland Hotel) and another was on High Street. Others were located in an old paint shop and a grocery store.
  • In the Spring of 1839, two lots were purchased on Rockwell and on Prospect in order to build two schools. Both of these schools were completed in 1840.
  • In 1840 there were 6 official schools. These schools all had separate boys and girls departments. Male teachers instructed the boys and females instructed the girls. At Rockwell, Prospect and West St. Clair Academy, there were also separate departments for primary grades and senior grades.
