I like Cleveland School of Science and Medicine a lot but one thing I think should be their low intersect in music stimulates a lot of the students and even teachers there. And it’s not fare for the students who aren’t interested in sports, chess, and dance and they don’t have a chance to express their talents like numerous Students would like too.

During my time at CSSM, I've made a few friends that have helped me get through the last four years. The workload may seem like a lot unless you know how to set your priorities and establish an order of importance. Throughout my time here, I've had access to plenty of AP and Honors courses that helped prepare me for college and instructors that provide students with above average lessons. Being that it is the Cleveland School of Science and Medicine, you'll have access to plenty of internships, extracurriculars, and students led resources.
This school has prepared me for college work by taking Advanced Placement and Honors classes throughout my four years of high school. The teachers are strict, but they are caring and loving. I specifically go to Science and Medicine because I want to be in the nursing field and they send out scholarships and internships for the students to apply to so that they can get a learning experience before they apply to a major in college. I can honestly say that this school has helped me.
