North Royalton City School District

“We Inspire and Empower Learners” The Vision of the North Royalton City School District is that our educational community will be a model in identifying individual student needs and providing comprehensive support.

In June 2010, the North Royalton City School District officially began the journey towards setting the course for its future as a school district. In just nine months, nearly 1,000 people came together to develop the district’s five-year strategic plan. This plan represents the culmination of months of hard work and community engagement. The students of today and tomorrow will reap the benefits of this strategic plan and the work of so many individuals.

In addition to the recent adoption of the district’s strategic plan, The North Royalton City School District has a great deal to be proud of in and out of the classroom. The district has achieved an EXCELLENT rating on the Ohio Department of Education Local Report Card for the tenth consecutive year!

Academic programs at North Royalton City School District are designed to build and reinforce the mastery of basic skills, encourage higher-order thinking skills, and to instill a love of lifelong learning. 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 the high school. North Royalton High School also offers students the opportunity to take rigorous Advanced Placement courses. The district provides outstanding special education and related services for students with disabilities as well as vocational education through the Cuyahoga Valley Career Center (CVCC).

The North Royalton City School District currently serves more than 4,700 students from the Cities of North Royalton and Broadview Heights. The school district is comprised of an Early Childhood Center (Pre-K through Kindergarten); three elementary schools— Albion, Royal View, and Valley Vista Elementary (Grades 1 to 4); North Royalton Middle School (Grades 5-8); and North Royalton High School (Grades 9 to 12.

Elementary schools offer 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 organization.

North Royalton High School has received state and national recognition for its Marching Band, JETS Rocketry Team, Robotics Team and Computer Programming Team. During the 2009-2010 school year, the Academic Challenge team of Scott Jackon, Greg Smith, and Rae Melilli, who appeared on the Newschannel 5 television show, won the competition. The North Royalton schools have had many championship athletic teams and state qualifiers in individual sports.

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 Advisory Council, Business Advisory Council, Financial Advisory Council and Facilities Committee. Our Band Boosters and Athletic Boosters have raised thousands of dollars to support the athletic and music program as well as supporting our students every time they march out onto the field.

With goals and action steps in place for the district’s strategic plan, the real work will now commence. The North Royalton City School District will work in concert with the community to make the vision, mission, and actions come to life. The district is dedicated to providing the education students need today to prepare them for the world of tomorrow.

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 764 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, and to strive for higher levels of excellence.

At Royal Redeemer, we are truly concerned about 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, as well as the great sports, organizations, and clubs that we offer. We have an active Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) that works to foster good relationships between teachers, children and parents, and provide many educational and fun family activities. In our Elementary School, we offer weekly Chapel, Bible Study, daily Devotions and Prayer time, Basketball, Track, Volleyball and Cheerleading as well as Ski and Math clubs, Band, Music, and Drama. The students are often preparing for a Spelling or Geography Bee, the upcoming Science and Engineering Fairs, working in our versatile Technology Lab, using the Interactive White Boards that are in each classroom, or are involved in a special ministry opportunity or service project that may tie into a learning lesson.

Our highly respected Preschool program offers a variety of morning and afternoon classes for 3 year olds, 4 year olds, and Pre-k for 5 year olds. The preschool children spend their days learning through play, going on fun and educational field trips, are often involved in special art projects, are learning how to pray, and are constantly learning about Jesus and how He is their best friend! They help with special ministry projects by baking muffins at Thanksgiving time, donating their saved pennies for the less fortunate, and sending Christmas gifts to children who would otherwise not receive any! They put on a spectacular Christmas Story program and do other “performances” throughout the year.

We currently serve over 450 students in our Parent & Tot 2 year old program, our preschool 3’s, 4’s, and Pre-K programs, and our Elementary and Middle School. We offer both half day and full day Kindergarten and 1st through 8th grades. We have an in-house Intervention and Enrichment Specialist that offers specific programs for children needing learning extension or support, a Speech and Language Pathologist, as well as Reading Intervention Specialists. They all work hard, as does the entire staff and administration, to make sure your child gets as personalized an education as possible in a safe and caring environment.
