Our partners at the Cleveland Metropolitan School District demonstrate how diverse Cleveland really is. Thomas Jefferson International Newcomers Academy, a CMSD school on the West Side school houses 540 students who speak nearly 20 different languages but have one common educational goal.
The majority of the students in the school are Spanish-speaking (61 percent), but there are significant populations of Arabic and Nepali (14 percent each). The remainder speak a host of other languages, including Burmese, Chinese, Farsi, Kinyamulenge, Swahili, Urdu, Thai, Albanian, Vietnamese, Bassa, Dinka, English-Creole, French, Ukrainian, Somali, Congo, Karen or Kirundi.
