Early Childhood Program (Preschool) provides quality, comprehensive programs and collaborative services that support young children and families for lifelong learning. The Early Childhood Education (ECE) program recognizes that all children can learn and acquire knowledge, primarily through playful interactions with materials and people in their environment. The learning environment encourages creative exploration with a balance of child- and adult-initiated, age-appropriate activities. The program also recognizes the home and community as valuable resources. Staff and parents work together in the development of culturally sensitive curriculum. Information on ECE eligibility

Neighborhood Program (Grades K-3) offers a strong academic curriculum based on state academic content standards in a community setting. Students are assigned to neighborhood elementary schools according to home addresses. The district determines the boundaries for each neighborhood school.


Cincinnati Gifted Academy (CGA) serves gifted students in grades 3-6 throughout the Cincinnati Public School District.  Students eligible for the Cincinnati Gifted Academy have the following gifted markers:

  • Rank at the Superior Cognitive level (128 or higher) on a cognitive abilities test OR
  • Score at the 95th percentile or higher in mathematics or reading on the Terra Nova or other standardized achievement test. PLUS one of the following requirements:

Hyde Park School will no longer offer an entrance exam to incoming CGA 3rd Graders:  

Students attending a Cincinnati Public School will test at their local schools throughout the year.  The Inview, Terra Nova and MAP scores are used to determine eligibility for entrance to CGA.

Non Cincinnati Public School students can submit cognitive and achievement test scores to our office for review.  Only assessments listed on the Ohio Department of Education approved list will be accepted.  See link for complete list
