About Chase School

  • Chase is a Pre-Kindergarten through sixth grade school located in the heart of the Northside community. As a team-based school, Chase is organized in primary and intermediate school teams. This gives your child an opportunity to work with a group of teachers, which assures the highest quality staff and instructional program.

    We are a former turnaround building. In just a few short years we moved from a low performing building to one of the highest performing schools in the district. In fact, in 2014, the school was identified by the Ohio Department of Education as a High Progress School of Honor. Chase was one of three schools in Ohio and the only CPS school to be awarded with such a momentous accolade. We are able to set and meet high achievement goals because of the commitment of our staff and our focus on consistency.

    Our staff focuses on the whole student — meeting their academic, physical and emotional needs  — so that our students can focus on achievement.

    Community Learning Centers

    For our schools to transform, our communities must be revitalized. For our communities to revitalize, our schools must be transformed. They are dependent on each other and Community Learning Centers are the link.

    What is a Community Learning Center (CLC)?

    Schools and the communities they serve are closely linked. Seldom does one succeed without the success of the other. That's why our CLCs support student achievement, enrich and revitalize communities, and maximize the community's return on their financial investment.

    We are very proud to be a CLC and a neighborhood anchor. We strive to go beyond academics to focus on the whole child by serving as a hub for community services that are available to all students, their families and the entire community. We are able to offer a variety services thanks to the collaboration and support of our many partners and the committed community of Chase.
