Menlo Park Academy (Menlo) is Ohio’s only tuition-free community school focusing solely on gifted learners in grades K-8. Menlo is an approved partner of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) and Cleveland residents are given priority for admission. To accommodate the school’s projected growth and desire for a campus-like setting, Menlo acquired the 78,000 SF abandoned Joseph & Feiss Building and surrounding 7 acres in the Stockyard neighborhood. The new location will enable Menlo to increase its enrollment by 300 students.
