SPRINGFIELD — S.C.O.P.E. Academy hosted a visit from several state education officials May 20.

S.C.O.P.E., also known as the Greater Summit County Early Learning Center (GSCELC), was the 2013 recipient of the Charter School of the Year Award from the Ohio Association of Public Charter Schools, according to officials.

According to S.C.O.P.E. officials, State Superintendent Richard Ross was interested in seeing the “School of Choice” public conversion school firsthand, and school officials demonstrated the delivery of the school’s 21st-century components of a global education involving nature-based learning, a project-based approach, performing arts and systemic supports.

Director Teresa Graves, Summit County Educational Service Center’s Linda Fuline and GSCELC Board member Dale Cook. SCOPE, located at 2141 Pickle Road, offers instruction in preschool through fourth grade. For more information, visit scopeacademy.org.
