How strong are the charter high schools in Cleveland?

With a fresh school year kicking off, we analyzed newly released data from Niche.com — which include comprehensive report cards, rankings and reviews — to identify those schools that made the biggest strides last year and those that lead their peers.

Invictus High School's overall rating improved the most among similar schools in Cleveland, rising from a C- to a C, according to data from Niche.

For the 2019-2020 school year, the school, located at 3122 Euclid Ave., enrolls 373 students. Invictus High School serves a diverse population: 90% of students identify as black. Niche gave the school mixed grades: C- on an A-D scale for academics, B+ for administration and C- for clubs and activities.

The overall ranking comes from Niche's proprietary algorithms. A school's ranking might change due to many factors, including the relative rankings of similar schools and whether a school gained or lost peers due to openings or closings. Other numbers come from current public data from the U.S. government.

Academically, 42% of Invictus High School's students scored as proficient or above in math, and 72% did so in reading. That's compared to city averages of 34% in math and 60% in reading.

While some charter high schools in Cleveland are moving up the ranks, others are consistently top-rated overall, including:

  • Horizon Science Academy - Cleveland High School, with an overall rating of C.
  • Promise Academy, with a C rating overall.
  • Cleveland Academy for Scholarship Technology & Learning (CASTLE), rated C- overall.
