The health and safety of our students and staff at Green Inspiration Academy is our top priority.
Our Reset and Restart plans have been carefully mapped out during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are navigating very different and planning challenges for the 2020-2021 school year in real time. When it’s safe to reopen, we will be ready. For now, we will operate our academy online so that we can all rest assured that we are protecting ourselves and families.
If you don’t know us yet, we are Green Inspiration Academy, a K-8 charter school, with a strong history of academic success for our students. Along with our important health and wellness initiatives and our daily commitment to the parent-teacher-student relationship, we are one of the oldest and longest running charter schools in all of Ohio. And we are the highest performing K-8 school surrounding the Warrensville Heights, Maple Heights, Bedford and Garfield Heights school districts.
We have deep academic roots in our community, and we serve our students with multiple pathways to academic success. We develop trust with our scholars, and their families, and we can support diverse learning styles. Our students can have tutorial assistance in reading and math, special education including IEPs and 504s and supportive 1:1 relationships with principals and our committed faculty. We are one of Ohio’s top performing tuition-free public charter schools and we are enrolling for a safe and sanitized 2020-2021 school year beginning August 17th. Read on for more.
