We’re Cleveland’s only community Jewish day school – a school that celebrates both the richness of pluralism and the strength of diversity.
At Agnon, academic excellence in general studies and in Judaics reinforces and supports one another. Our graduates go on to the best high schools in the area, and are prepared to enter the most challenging universities four years later with a set of values and self confidence to last a lifetime.
A low student-to-teacher ratio, superb master educators, and a sophisticated and values-driven curriculum: this is what you’ll find at The Agnon School.
Learn more about the Agnon experience in a short filmby Agnon alumni and take a tour through our website.

A beautiful day in the neighborhood
As an example of exceptionally poor timing and lousy geographical planning, we chose to take a walk through the neighborhoods of Jerusalem today, right along President Obama's motorcade route. Among the barricades and detours, we saw dozens . . . of police and soldiers lining the street, not counting the rooftop snipers or the ones in suits with what seemed to be collapsible assault rifles, checking every garbage can along the way. Sadly, this is probably similar to what he would see from the inside of his armored limo . . . [in] most of his host countries' streets. But it occurred to me that there were some sights that were clearly unique to this city and this country, and that seeing even some of them could give the President a glimpse of what it means to be a Jew and an Israeli.
If the limousine slowed -- or better yet, if he stepped out and really walked through the neighborhood -- he might see street signs that bear the names of Jewish royalty from antiquity (King Hezekiah, from the eighth century before the common era), physician/philosophers from the thirteenth century (Nachmanides) or Zionist thinkers (Achad Ha-am) and poets (Yehudah Amichai) . . .
