Thomas Jefferson International

Twelve high school students attending Cleveland Metropolitan School District’s Thomas Jefferson International Newcomers Academy on West 46th Street in Cleveland visited and toured Cleveland City Hall. In addition, the students were accompanied by their school representatives and were welcomed by Mayor Frank G. Jackson. The International Newcomers Academy extends a welcoming and guiding hand to immigrant students from Puerto Rico and around the globe. Students with little or no grasp of English benefit from an interactive setting, total English immersion and an excellent student to teacher ratio of 19:1.
