Mission & Vision

School Description and Mission Statement

Situated on a hillside overlooking the beautiful Santa Barbara Channel, Cleveland Elementary School has provided quality educational services to its diverse student population since 1959.  Teachers and parents engage in a process of evaluation, planning, and implementation to ensure that students realize their full potential as thoughtful, informed and creative members of society.


We believe children learn best when they engage in a variety of meaningful activities in a challenging, structured and positive environment. All members of the Cleveland School community collaborate to offer learning programs that enable all children to maximize their academic, social and emotional growth and promote their development into thoughtful, productive and responsible citizens.


Cleveland is a Character Counts school and focuses on Positive Behavior Supports, Social Emotional Learning and Restorative Approaches. . At Cleveland, we will employ all three of these braided ideologies to guide decisions on policy, programs, and practice. These practices are inclusive, collaborative, supportive, reflective, and a form of accountability.
