CHS Principal Jeff Lam

Dear Cleveland High School Alumni,

I am honored to share some of the work at Cleveland High School!  The positive atmosphere at Cleveland High School is remarkable, and it is evident that the strong connection between students, staff, and alumni contributes to the vibrant school culture. It is not unusual to see Cleveland alumni around the school and at our many events, pouring their energy and support into our students and staff.

One of our key focuses is student mental health, and I am excited to share that we received a significant grant from the City of Seattle to support this work. We are using these funds to collaborate with many community partners to support our students across a range of needs. We will soon welcome a new onsite therapist to our building and many small group counseling options our students request.

Despite budget challenges across the district, Cleveland is well positioned to continue to support students through a rigorous, college-prep, STEM education within three unique pathways: the School of Biomed Life Sciences, the School of Engineering and Design, and the School of Computer Science. These pathways offer students diverse educational opportunities, preparing them for future success in their chosen fields.

As we aim for continuous improvement, we also have continuing infrastructure needs. The school’s sound systems in the gym and auditorium need replacement, and we are actively seeking the assistance of the broader CHS community to help us ensure that our students continue to go to a school they can take pride in. Additionally, we are working towards clearing a path between the main building and the football field, enhancing accessibility and safety for all.

Finally, I want to thank our Alumni Association for their partnership in establishing a brand new Hall of Fame in our main building. This new display near our main entrance will honor the accomplishments and legacies of Cleveland’s distinguished alumni and inspire current students to follow in their footsteps. Thank you for your partnership in bridging Cleveland’s rich history with its bright future.

Warm regards,

Jeff Lam
Cleveland High School
