Dr. Ryan Ewell

Welcome to the home of the Cleveland Elementary School Stars! 


My name is Dr. Ryan Ewell. It is with great anticipation and excitement that I welcome you to the 2021-22 school year. I am honored and humbled to begin my first year leading a school with such a strong tradition of commitment to our students and the community! 


As your Principal, it is important to me that I work collaboratively with our parents, and our amazing teachers to empower our students to enrich their world by facilitating learning through relationships and relevant, innovative experiences.


Please know that I am here first and foremost for the benefit of our most important assets, which are the wonderful students that come through our doors each day.


Working together as a partnership of educators, families, and community members will provide our students an environment of academic excellence and high expectations.  


Together we are #ClevelandProud
