Midnimo Cross Cultural Middle School

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.

Midnimo has received an "A" in "Progress" / Student Academic Growth during the 2023-24 academic year, the 15th straight year students have met or exceeded State of Ohio measurements of one-year of academic growth! Moreover, the focus on exposure to career options make Midnimo Middle School a great choice for your student!

Our Education

In addition, our highly qualified teachers work collaboratively so there is an integration of academic content across the curricula, as well as the most current use of technology to enhance our instruction. Finally, Midnimo is committed to providing real life connections through our expanding community based learning experiences. Midnimo is determined to provide an excellent education, a positive learning environment, while fostering cultural awareness and acceptance!

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 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.

Midnimo Science Fair

Our New Facility!

Midnimo will occupy a new Facility in Fall 2024! The building will be placed on a 7-acre site housing our sister elementary school Cesar Chavez. The new building on our beautiful campus will feature larger classrooms, modern science labs, collaborative spaces for student projects and a large multipurpose space with modern technology. Our performance of our high-performing student body will be further enhanced by these improvements!
