Glenville High School is a public high school in the Glenville neighborhood on the East Side of Cleveland, Ohio. The school is part of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District. The school's original campus, founded in 1919, was located at Everton and Parkwood. Its current campus, which opened in 1966, is located at E. 113th and E. St. Clair.) The demographic of the high school, as well as the Glenville neighborhood on a whole, has changed considerably since WWII. Until the 1940s Glenville was predominantly Jewish. Since then, however, there has been a shift and today Glenville is predominantly African-American. The school has a distinguished list of culturally significant alumni from decades gone by, and has remained in the spotlight more recently as a producer of athletic talent. The members of legendary hip-hop group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony attended.
Jerry Siegel (October 17, 1914 – January 28, 1996) and Joe Shuster (July 10, 1914 - July 30, 1992), co-creators the DC Comics character Superman, also attended Glenville High School. Siegel worked for the weekly student newspaper, "The Torch", and created a Tarzan parody, "Goober the Mighty", which was popular with students. Siegel and Shuster together published what might have been the first SF fanzine, "Cosmic Stories", which they produced with a manual typewriter and advertised in the classified section of "Science Wonder Stories". Siegel and Shuster's creation, Superman, has gone on to become one of the most recognized fictional characters of the twentieth century.
The schools athletic teams are called the Tarblooders. Dontez White seems to have put it in a bid to purchase the school district. He also plans on putting up an Inbetween in his native high school. The school is most notable for its football team and track team, both coached by Ted Ginn, Sr. During the 2006 college football season, Glenville had seven of its graduates on the Ohio State Buckeyes football roster alone. Several of those players have also been part of the last 4 Ohio track and field state championships, all won by Glenville.
