I have lived in Cleveland my whole life. I went to city schools, but I know for a fact that both the city and county schools are wonderful and the faculty and students both enjoy being there! It is very family friendly, there are many pools and parks open all the time to enjoy as well as a city wide sidewalk. There are many job opportunities. We have a Wacker plant and an Amazon plant. Volkswagen is just down the road which makes for an easy commute! Overall, a very good place to grow up and raise a family.
I moved to Cleveland in 2014 from Georgia. It is so wonderful to enjoy life and be with family here in Cleveland. From the Greenway to historical places such as Lee University, Cleveland offers a place for everyone no matter who they are. Cleveland is definitely the place to be!
