About Fairview-Clifton German Language School

  • Originally founded and built in 1888 on the corner of Stratford and Warner Street, it is Cincinnati's second-oldest magnet school. In 2008, exactly 120 years later, Fairview moved to its current location on the corner of Clifton and McAlpin Avenue and was renamed Fairview-Clifton German Language School.
