Our School

Midnimo Cross Cultural Middle School is continuing to create a safe and respectful multicultural environment that facilitates accelerated academic achievement while instilling a desire to learn, taking appropriate risks, and accepting challenges.  The name “Midnimo” means “Unity” in the Somali language, and underlies a central tenet of our philosophy to bringing our diverse community together in the interest of the education of our children.

Our Students

Our school community is committed in supporting our students in their pursuit of lifelong learning and nurturing high self-esteem and respect for others. We believe that everyone can succeed in becoming better thinkers and independent learners. To accomplish this mission, first and most importantly, our curriculum is aligned to and paced with the Common Core and the Ohio’s New Learning Standards. Secondly, we consistently monitor student progress and adjust our instructional strategies based on that data. All students receive free meals daily.
