Cincinnati City School District Reviews

Schools here are all across the board. In my opinion, I attended two of the best schools in the district, Dater Montessori for grade school and Walnut Hills High School. These two schools had excellent teachers and great facilities. However there are schools in this district that are the complete opposite. Cincinnati public school district is large, lots of different areas of Cincinnati are included, some of them are not the best. A lot have old worn down buildings and unruly students. All of the teachers in the district are tired and underpaid, but what teacher isn't these days? I believe Cincinnati public schools rant pretty low on a national test score average but there are some gems in all the mud.

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.
