Hawken and Laurel Students

High school students from Hawken School at the Gries Center on Magnolia Drive in Cleveland, and Laurel School in Shaker Heights came together as one big class for a visit and tour to Cleveland City Hall to learn about the City of Cleveland, the importance of education and community involvement. In addition, the students, accompanied by their teachers, were welcomed by Mayor Frank G. Jackson and were able to ask Mayor Jackson questions about Cleveland, city government and toured the Mayor’s Red Room and his personal office.

Founded in 1915, Hawken School is an independent, coeducational college preparatory day school serving 1,010 students in preschool through grade 12 from nine counties in Northeast Ohio.

Laurel School, founded in 1896, is a nationally recognized, college preparatory, independent day school for girls, Kindergarten through Grade 12, with a coeducational Pre-Primary program.
