Preparing Life Long Learners

Lakeshore Intergenerational School is the Collinwood campus of our city-wide Intergenerational School, nationally recognized for our innovative intergenerational approach to learning. Our school was founded on two mainstay principles: 1) learning is a lifelong developmental process, and 2) knowledge is socially constructed. Our students are challenged, nurtured, and encouraged by teachers, peers, and senior mentors in multi-age clusters on their journey to becoming life long learners.

Serving Grades K-6

Lakeshore Intergenerational School serves students in grades K-6, and is growing each year until we reach K-8. Contact the school to learn more about opportunities for your child.

A Community of Life Long Learners

We're proud to say that Lakeshore Intergenerational School is not your average school. Our students work together in multi-age learning clusters, not traditional grades. Our students and staff work together with groups of senior citizens in our community. We're all working on being LifeLong Learners and Spirited Citizens. Our innovative intergenerational approach was pioneered right here in Cleveland at our flagship Intergenerational School, and has since been studied and recognized nationally and internationally. We're proud of our unique approach, connecting students with learners of all ages. Our school is led by Principal Robin Bartley, and was founded Drs. Cathy and Peter Whitehouse.

Ready to Take The Next Step?

We are currently enrolling for the upcoming school year. Our school is public and open to ALL families; we do have limited spaces due to our small class sizes. If you are interested in securing your child's spot for next year, please consider taking action sooner than later. Thanks for your interest!


If you would like to schedule a tour of the school or have any questions regarding enrollment, please contact our Enrollment Director, Mr. Shawn Hallowell.
