Cincinnati Public Schools Cincinnati Apartments

At Cincinnati Apartments, we understand the importance of education in today's society. Parents want nothing more than to place their children in schools where they know their children will be in good hands. Especially when moving to a new area, parents want to make sure that there are appropriate schools nearby. Researching specific needs and wants for their children's education is the first step that any moving parent should take. A simple phone call to the school's district will answer most of your questions, but not all. Some cases may require a visit to a counselor who is more than willing to help a parent find the right education and school for their kids. The internet is also a very useful source for information regarding ANYTHING related to your child's education. Here is a link to the Cincinnati Public Schools website.

The Cincinnati Public Schools will be among the highest achieving school districts in the nation and will receive the highest ratings on the State Report Card. Our students will envision a positive future for themselves and will be successful learners. Our graduates will be prepared to enter the workforce or be accepted into institutions of higher learning.

Individual student progress will be assessed and monitored regularly, and each student will receive appropriate and timely intervention to ensure academic progress. The curriculum and the district culture will promote an appreciation and respect for diverse perspectives and talents. Students with special needs will receive appropriate accommodations, resulting in higher levels of academic performance.

The Cincinnati Public Schools will provide facilities that will be high-quality, safe, and well-maintained. The learning environments will be orderly and will facilitate and appropriately complement academic programs. Our paced, integrated curriculum will provide academic consistency across schools while offering flexible and challenging learning opportunities. District policies and administrative procedures will focus on promoting student achievement; our efforts to support student learning will be adequately funded while maximizing efficiency of operations without sacrificing quality.

Cincinnati Public Schools teachers and staff will work in partnership with students, families and the community to ensure that students meet or exceed academic standards from pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade. Every school will be a Community Learning Center to more efficiently integrate community resources in the delivery of services to our students. The members of the Board of Education will be held accountable to the public for a high-quality school system that is fiscally responsible.

The Cincinnati Public Schools will be a community of lifelong learning and support for the citizens we serve.

General Homework Tips for Parents

  • Make sure your child has a quiet, well-lit place to do homework.
    Avoid having your child do homework with the television on or in places with other distractions, such as people coming and going.
  • Make sure the materials your child needs, such as paper, pencils and a dictionary, are available.
    Ask your child if special materials will be needed for some projects and get them in advance.
  • Help your child with time management.
    Establish a set time each day for doing homework. Don't let your child leave homework until just before bedtime. Think about using a weekend morning or afternoon for working on big projects, especially if the project involves getting together with classmates.
  • Be positive about homework.
    Tell your child how important school is. The attitude you express about homework will be the attitude your child acquires.
  • When your child does homework, you do homework.
    Show your child that the skills they are learning are related to things you do as an adult. If your child is reading, you read too. If your child is doing math, balance your checkbook.
  • When your child asks for help, provide guidance, not answers.
    Giving answers means your child will not learn the material. Too much help teaches your child that when the going gets rough, someone will do the work for him or her.
  • When the teacher asks that you play a role in homework, do it.
    Cooperate with the teacher. It shows your child that the school and home are a team. Follow the directions given by the teacher.
  • If homework is meant to be done by your child alone, stay away.
    Too much parent involvement can prevent homework from having some positive effects. Homework is a great way for kids to develop independent, lifelong learning skills.
  • Stay informed.
    Talk with your child's teacher. Make sure you know the purpose of homework and what your child's class rules are.
  • Help your child figure out what is hard homework and what is easy homework.
    Have your child do the hard work first. This will mean he will be most alert when facing the biggest challenges. Easy material will seem to go fast when fatigue begins to set in.
  • Watch your child for signs of failure and frustration.
    Let your child take a short break if she is having trouble keeping her mind on an assignment.
  • Reward progress in homework.
    If your child has been successful in homework completion and is working hard, celebrate that success with a special event (e.g., pizza, a walk, a trip to the park) to reinforce the positive effort.
