“We Inspire and Empower Learners”

AtAt North Royalton City Schools, students are the focal point in all that we do. Academic programs are designed to build and reinforce critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity. The District is ranked as one of the finest in the State of Ohio and the community takes pride in knowing the district is doing its best to prepare children for their future careers and to be outstanding contributing citizens to our society.

The District serves approximately 4,000 students from the cities of North Royalton and Broadview Heights. There are three schools: North Royalton Elementary School (PreK 4), North Royalton Middle School (Grades 5 8), and North Royalton High School (Grades 9 to 12).

North Royalton City Schools offers the finest quality education while at the same time is fiscally responsible to the taxpayers. The District will continue to make sure that while operating on one of the lowest per pupil expenditures in the county, students receive the same quality education that the communities of North Royalton and Broadview Heights have come to expect. The District consistently receives the Auditor of State Award with Distinction for a “clean” financial audit report. The treasurer’s office has received the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association for more than 25 years.

With the passage of a bond issue and a maintenance fund earmarked to maintain the buildings in May 2017, the District built one new centralized elementary school, located on the 23 acres of District owned property on the southwest corner of State Road and Valley Parkway. Funds also were used to renovate the middle school for today’s learning environments and renovate and rebuild the high school to focus on student centered learning. A new 100,000 square foot section was built onto the rear of the high school that now contains regular classrooms, science labs and other educational spaces.

Also, as part of the bond issue plan, were permanent improvement projects that were completed. At the middle school, this includes the replacement of roofing and HVAC units, a redesign of the media center, updated technology infrastructure, as well as new learning spaces for STEM and other areas of curriculum. At the high school, this includes renovation of the 1970s and 1980s areas of the high school which now includes new science labs, media center, expanded space for music department, as well as installation of new HVAC, lighting, roofs, door, windows and safe and secure entrances.

With a solid academic base developed at the elementary and middle school levels, students are well prepared to select either a challenging college preparatory and/or a comprehensive career preparatory program when they enter high school. North Royalton High School offers 192 courses, 16 Advanced Placement courses and 19 Honors classes. The District provides outstanding special education and related services for students with disabilities, enrichment programs for students, as well as career based education through the Cuyahoga Valley Career Center.

The District offers an every day, all day kindergarten option in addition to its traditional half time program. North Royalton Elementary School offers students many opportunities to expand their knowledge through special interest clubs and leadership programs. Middle school and high school students have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of intramural and interscholastic athletics as well as a large spectrum of clubs, leadership opportunities and scholastic achievement organizations.

Parents are encouraged to become actively involved in our schools. There is a PTA at all building levels and parents and residents serve in an advisory capacity to the administration through committees such as the Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment Committee, Business Advisory Council, Senior Citizen Advisory Council, Financial Advisory and Audit Committee and the Community Facilities Advisory Committee. Our Band Boosters, Choir Boosters and Athletic Boosters have raised thousands of dollars to support the athletic and music programs as well as supporting our students every time they march out onto the field or appear on a stage.

St. Albert the Great School

The mission of St. Albert the Great School is to enable its students to become knowledgeable Catholics while seeking academic excellence in an environment permeated with Gospel values. Currently educating 800 students in grades K-8, St. Albert's attempts to accommodate each child to grow and flourish according to his/her needs and abilities.

The school itself is considered to be an integral part of the parish as well as the community and is a vital force in aiding students to assimilate easily into society. One of the keys to its success is the close relationship that is fostered between school and home. Parents share as co-partners in the task of providing a well-balanced education for their child.

Through the efforts of the parent organizations, PTO, Music Patrons, and Athletic Boosters, students benefit through some exemplary programs and excellent educational materials. Recognizing today's technological advances, computers now integrate an ever-changing K-8 school curriculum.

Those parish children who attend public schools receive systematic religious instruction through the PSR, Parish School of Religion, held on Monday evenings each week during school year. Currently over 800 children are served through the PSR program.

In addition, the North Royalton City Schools provide assistance to the school through auxiliary services and learning disabilities programs. They work in a collaborative nature to meet children's needs in the quest for the best education of all the children in North Royalton.

Royal Redeemer Lutheran School

Higher learning begins long before college. It begins by teaching children early on to reach for something higher. At Royal Redeemer Lutheran School, we hold ourselves to higher standards, set higher expectations for our students and our teachers, and believe in a higher purpose. We are committed to helping each child realize their God-given gifts to discover the plan God has for their lives. Our mission is clear: RRLS exists to equip each student to achieve educational excellence, inspire a lifelong love of learning and grow Christian leaders.

At Royal Redeemer, we truly care about, and get to know, each of our students. We are dedicated to helping each student grow scholastically, socially, and spiritually. We combine an outstanding academic curriculum with the teaching of values such as honesty, forgiveness, kindness, respect, and compassion. We believe in educating the whole child in an environment that nurtures high self-esteem, encourages academic excellence, and builds character.

Our Nationally Accredited School is supported by the many wonderful families that trust us to educate their children. We offer weekly Chapel, Bible study, daily devotions, and prayer time for the development of our faith. RRLS supports giving opportunities for a variety of missions in our community and abroad. Our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) works to support our school mission, fosters relationships between teachers, children, and parents, and provides educational and family activities.

Extracurricular programs offered include volleyball, cross country, basketball, cheerleading, track, band, art and engineering clubs, and bowling. In middle school, seminar electives have included sewing, finance courses, creative writing, cross-grade level opportunities, and more. Our general curriculum offers art, music, PE, technology, study skills, and cursive. All students in grades K-8 are 1:1 with laptops, while offering a balanced approach to literacy and classroom instructional tools. Enrichment and intervention programs are also part of our general curriculum to support students' learning, and a counselor and speech/language pathologist is available, if needed.

Our highly respected Early Education and Preschool program offers a variety of options for children ages 3 to 5-years-old, including half and full-day classes. The preschool students spend their days learning through educational play and experiences, with a curriculum that is meaningful and intentionally planned by teachers. Using assessments and conferences, planned lessons focus on the whole child's learning: from cognitive abilities, to motor competency, to social-emotional skills. Spiritual growth is prioritized each day, through Bible stories, prayer, service projects, and regular chapel services. Enrichments, visitors, and field trips are also an essential part of our hand-on learning. We believe involving children in experiences -- like donating saved pennies for the less fortunate, visiting an apple farm, or putting on a program that tells the Christmas Story -- can foster a joy for learning and caring that they’ll carry throughout their lifetimes.

We currently serve over 350 students in our Preschool, Elementary and Middle School programs. Come and see for yourself why RRLS is so widely chosen and respected as an excellent, Christ-centered school. We can offer your family an educational consultation to visit, tour, and learn more, or even schedule a shadow day for your child. Simply call us at (440) 237-7988 and Jen or Monica will be happy to assist you. Visit www.rrls.org to learn more.
