I think Cleveland's IB program is it's greatest highlight! I feel academically and mentally prepared for college thanks to the many IB classes I've taken. However, CHS doesn't really have the "traditional" high school vibe. For example, there is little school spirit, low dance and assembly attendance, and the building isn't decorative to show spirit. It is a predominately white student population with predominately white teachers. Administration lately has been passive about making change and solving issues. There are pros and cons to the school.

In terms of academics and intellectual challenge, I found Cleveland High School to be average. That being said, I did find many wonderful teachers who enriched my educational experience, and were very supportive and encouraging of me. You get out of it what you put into it, and I suggest focusing on the community building aspect!
Cleveland High School is a school that really cares about giving opportunities to its students. The IB diploma program is a way that many students enhance academic challenge, and the program makes it very accessible to any level of interest by allowing individual classes, partial diplomas, and full diplomas. The teacher are also highly committed to extra curricular activities from speech and debate to sports to drama, there's really something for everyone that has been well developed and worked on by staff. Unfortunately, being in Portland, OR, a very white city, the diversity levels are very poor-- especially in IB and advanced classes.
