Cleveland High School has much to offer its students in terms of the arts. Known around Portland, OR as the champion of Choir, Drama, and Speech & Debate competitions, students with any interest in pursuing the fine arts in life will be welcomed. Not to mention that it's an IB school! However, the football team is nothing to be proud of and marijuana can be bought off of every other person. Most of the teachers are supportive and a handful are well-liked. The school itself, however, is in desperate need of repair, not to mention lead in the water. In all, it's alright.
One of the things I most enjoyed about Cleveland is the volume of opportunity the students have available to them. Whether you're interested in the arts, athletics, science, mathematics, leadership, or speech and debate, you have the chance to be involved both in and outside of the classroom. The students are really encouraged to take control of their educations and of their high school experience. I've witnessed the school evolve and take strides to be a more open-minded and academically challenging environment, all because of it's students' dedication to making positive change. If you like to be involved and passionate, you will flourish in this school.
Cleveland is a great school. The teachers and student body are very positive and focused on learning. There are two things that bugged me about cleveland. The first thing is the lack of diversity at the campus. It feels like 80% of the students are white. On top of that everyone there is a very left wing liberal that repeats everything that their parents say. When you say or do something even slightly out of the box they either look at you like you're a genius or you have no idea what you're talking about. Second, I wish the school had better food options. There are only fast food places next to it and even the school salads are lacking in nutrition, but that's hardly the schools fault.
