Cleveland High School is an overall great school! The opportunities for extracurricular activities is overwhelming. The groups are very diverse, which helps to get to know so many new people. The choices for classes is very much the same, which makes sure that you get a well-rounded education, and gives you a variety of choices in electives.
The teachers are always willing to help and provide opportunities for the help you need. They are very invested in their students' success,
the school spirit is also a plus, homecoming as well as prom is a big deal, and allows for full school inclusion.

The only thing good was my counselor, that’s it. Some teachers care, some don’t care and others are just down right bad- kids there act crazy and lude. I dealt with severe migraines that would take me into a seizure like state and would cause me to shake and black out, so I missed days of school due to my health issues. One day my history teacher lectured me saying “Well, I know that sounds bad but- I still go to school with headaches too!” Worst school ever in my opinion. They don’t really care- some of the teachers do and like I said my counselor did! Some teachers will do everything for their students but most- most are bad or don’t care.
Cleveland High is a very well kept & beautiful campus. Teachers & staff are always willing to help out students, especially if you ask them for the guidance needed. There’s never a shortage of clubs, sports, or activities/events to attend if one is interested. A healthy mix of classes seems available that can pique most interests & accommodations can be made for those that need them as well. College readiness is taken seriously too, and counselors there can helps students with that, other school matters like class issues, as well as discuss personal problems if the student wants to discuss. School spirit is high and paraded around especially during homecoming and home played sports games, the latter of which is often trained deftly well.
