Cincinnati Public Schools Seeks Exceptional Superintendent

Cincinnati Public Schools is a progressive, diverse school district that values strong teaching and powerful academic initiatives that make a difference in students' lives. We challenge our students academically, while connecting them to the world around them through a network of supportive partnerships that prepare them to compete globally. Through outstanding learning environments and an array of choices to complement different interests and learning styles, Cincinnati Public Schools has earned a national reputation as a top urban school district.

Our Rich History

Cincinnati Public Schools began in 1829 as The Common Schools of Cincinnati. Its first successful school was Woodward High School, which remains the oldest public school west of the Allegheny Mountains. Encompassing 91 square miles, Cincinnati schools continue to grow in popularity. In 2002, Cincinnati voters approved a $1-billion bond levy, ensuring that all of our students are educated in new or fully renovated, state-of-the-art buildings. In 2016, voters overwhelmingly approved a new levy that includes an expansion of access to quality preschool.

The city is within one day's travel time to 30 other major metro markets, and has received multiple awards for being a top place to work and live.
