The mission of the Chagrin Falls Middle School Students of the Month is to acknowledge and reward students for exemplary performance. The students depict Tiger Techniques: Think, Integrity, Grit, Effort and Responsibility. Each month, the seventh and eighth grade teams collaborate and choose a male and female “Tiger of the Month” and the students receive a special treat from the PTO to take home and share with their family. November’s Students of the Month were Emily Kohler, Henry Ryan, Abigail Laws, and Wes Kaas.

Chagrin Falls Schools Placed on the College Board’s 8th Annual AP® District Honor Roll for Significant Gains in Student Success
Chagrin Falls Schools is one of 447 school districts in the U.S. and Canada being honored by the College Board with placement on the 8th Annual AP® District Honor Roll. To be included on the Honor Roll, Chagrin Falls High School had to, since 2015, increase the number of students participating in AP while also increasing or maintaining the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher. Reaching these goals shows that this district is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are ready for AP. The district also earned placement as one of 433 school districts on the 7th Annual AP District Honor Roll in 2016. It is rare for districts to earn placement on the AP District Honor Roll for multiple years in a row.
“We are committed to continually evaluating and improving our academic program for our students,” said Superintendent Robert Hunt, Chagrin Falls Schools. “This award is due to the district’s ability to personalize education providing greater access for students, our student body’s commitment to challenging themselves and also the tremendous work of our staff in maintaining high passage rates.”
