In 2010, Campus International School opened its doors after reaching an agreement to partner with Cleveland State. It’s been a success ever since.
Led by principal Julie Beers, the school has changed locations from its original Euclid Avenue site to Chester Avenue and along the way added an additional grade level each year since.
Veteran teacher Dora Bechtel spent 13 years in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, but the instant she walked in to Campus International she knew she had found an environment of positivity on another level.
“When you walk in here as a parent or a teacher, an adult, the way the teachers treat the students, how they talk to them and the respect among them, they are modeling exactly what they want the students to exhibit,” Bechtel said.
