Breakthrough Public Schools is a nationally recognized network that was rated the best Charter Management Organization (CMO) in Ohio by the 2017 CREDO study at Stanford University. Breakthrough originated as a commitment to increase educational options for Cleveland families. In 2009, three of Cleveland’s top stand-alone public charter schools discovered the challenges of operating individually and decided that sharing administrative functions would help them operate more efficiently and enable them to serve many more students. As a result, they formed Breakthrough Public Schools in 2010 with the mission to develop a growing network of distinctive school options that prepare Cleveland area students for success in life. Breakthrough manages core administrative responsibilities for the six elementary and six middle schools in its network and has recently embarked upon a strategy to coordinate its academic initiatives as well to bring national best practices to all of the 3,500 students within the network. The Breakthrough Public Schools network remains committed to setting its scholars on an early pathway to lifelong success in school, college, and career.
