I have been in CMSD since I started school. I have enjoyed my years of attendance. CMSD offers sports, clubs, and other enjoyment. Teachers are so supportive and nice. I would recommend CMSD to everyone! I have learned amazing things to carry on in my life. I have had the experience of a lifetime while attending CMSD. There are many memories and moments I will carry throughout my life. In the event I am in the Cleveland area once I become a parent, I will definitely have my kid attend CMSD. I would like to thank everyone I encountered during my years as you all have played a special role in my life.

What I loved about the Cleveland Municipal School District was how it prepared students for high-school and university courses. The dress-code system allowed me to understand why it's important to dress for success. I walk into places knowing what to wear and what not to wear. From an academic standpoint, I gained teamwork, mathematical, and communication skills. I now work for an small gaming media website where we are expected to speak with our teammates every day. I learned apply mathematical skills when paying bills and companies off. Communication skills were obtained through various group projects and study sessions. Overall, the Cleveland Municipal School District shaped me into the man I am today. I'd recommend everyone to attend one of their schools.
I like that my school district is very diverse. Majority of my shcool district students are African American and when we have homecoming and other things they appeal to our culture and make us feel comfortable. Our teachers are very caring and supportive of us seniors especially furthering our education to college. We also have oppurtunities other school districts dont have such as taking dual classes at tri-c ( a community college) with classes, books, and transportation paid for.
