Academic Excellence

At Birchwood School of Hawken, located in the City of Cleveland’s west side, we believe that academic excellence for each student is closely connected to what we call the “cycle of success.”

By providing children with meaningful intellectual challenges that are benchmarked based on a child’s ability, each child is:

1) Appropriately challenged
2) Required to invest energy and effort
3) Likely to achieve success

This success cycle is implemented in all grades and across all subject areas including language arts, mathematics, reading, science, social studies, technology, and foreign languages. This not only enables student growth in each subject, but more importantly develops a growing sense of competency, self-worth and enthusiasm for learning.
