    For the second consecutive year, Berea-Midpark High School has been named a 2018-2019 Cleveland Clinic Banner School. This award recognizes the school’s noteworthy success in leveraging community resources to advance student learning.

    The Cleveland Clinic Civic Education Department offers programs designed to promote health and wellness, academic achievement, and career preparedness for students in grades K through 12. It takes ambitious teachers and encouraging administrators, though, to deliver these opportunities to students. The effort Jessica Boone, Jim Bycznski, Thomas Conti, Jane Darrow, and Monica McMullen invested in implementing the eXpressions® program and the support they provided in the process demonstrate an exceptional commitment to student enrichment and distinguish Berea-Midpark High School as a 2018-2019 Cleveland Clinic Banner School: a distinction earned by fewer than 39% of the 126 schools in seven states that participated in Civic Education programming this year.
