Cleveland High School (Seattle, Washington)

Cleveland High School is a public secondary school located in Seattle, Washington. It is part of the Seattle Public Schools. The building, designated a historic landmark by the City of Seattle in 1981, stands atop Beacon Hill. The original 1927 building underwent a $68 million renovation in 2007, when a new gym and classroom building were added.The school overlooks Georgetown, Boeing Field, and the Duwamish River valley, an area that was once farmed by European immigrants but became heavily industrialized in the World War II era. The surrounding neighborhood on Beacon Hill is now primarily Asian, and most of the school's students are African American.In 1993, Cleveland became the home to the Fish and Roses project. Fish and Roses integrated fish farming and hydroponics into the school's currculum. Mark Weber, the project originator, and Ted Howard,Sr. the Principal wanted to see the project used as the focus of a new math and science based school. A separate building was built with funding from Boeing and Costco to house the project but within a few years the building was razed to make room for the new gym and school remodel.In 2003, under a Gates Foundation grant, the district separated Cleveland into four small academies - the Infotech Academy, which had started up in a small way in 2000 before the grant; the Arts and Humanities Academy; the Health, Environment and Life Academy (HEAL); and the Global Studies Academy. By 2009 Cleveland retained the Global Studies and HEAL academies, but overall academic improvement remained elusive. 56.7% of students graduated in 2009, on time or otherwise.
