Cincinnati City School District Reviews

I loved how this district is very diverse. You meet all types of people from all over the world. You’re able to learn different things, taste different foods, and appreciate life itself. I also loved how they offer college courses and advanced placement classes to give students a boost for college. I do wish there were a change in the way they prepare you for college. I wish they would have treated the college courses like how College works in real life. I don’t feel as prepared for College with this transition from highschool, but i did enjoy my years in high school, and i do miss it from time to time!

Cincinnati has many very good public schools. One of the most popular and ranked one of the best schools in Ohio is in Cincinnati, Walnut Hills High School. Cincinnati public schools have been improving the schools for years. These improvements include building new schools, offering vocational programs, and combining junior and senior high schools to improve the transition from junior high to high school. In addition, Cincinnati Public schools offer programs where high school students can take college courses through the College Credit Plus program. This helps students gain college credit and ease the transition from high school into college.
I have attended Cincinnati Public Schools my whole life, from elementary through high school. Overall, I had a great experience. I had wonderful, caring, organized teachers, thorough academics, and a positive experience with my peers. Due to the fact that it is a school district for a largely impoverished urban area, there were, of course, difficulties: lack of funding, (which can lead to lack of support and lack of resources) disorganization on administrative levels, and continuously declining lack of quality in school lunches. However, I was lucky enough to attend three high-rated Cincinnati Public Schools- Dater Montessori, Clark Montessori and SCPA. In general, these were great places to go to school and I am grateful. I only wish that the rest of Cincinnati Public Schools could have more support so they could support their diverse student bodies in the ultimate goal: graduation and solid plans for the future.
