The school is an excellent place to learn about different arts disciplines. The current (new) administration does not understand the culture of the school and is trying to change it without understanding what works. This is mostly because of the lack of cultural competency. They are not from Cleveland, and therefore do not understand the legacy of the school or the culture of the majority of the students attending.
Throughout my four years of attending Cleveland School of The Arts, I have loved the school. The students who attend this high school are able to express themselves freely, without judgement. Not only do they offer performing and visual arts, but they offer sports, including girls and boys basketball. They also have academic clubs, such as the decathlon team and the chess club. This high school has so much to offer, so there is nothing that I believe should be changed. Cleveland School of The Arts High School is a wonderful high school where teenagers are able to express themselves and show how artistic they are.
