John Hay or any school for that matter, is what you make of it. If you don't want to learn than don't waste anyone's time. Some schools are a lot better than others. It's also a parents job to find out which ones are best. If you have the grades, then enter a program that helps you take college classes while still in high school. And one more thing, proofread what you wrote before you submit!

I'm a Senior at Early College right now. For the most part, the school is okay, definitely better than many of the other neighboring high schools. However, it does have a lot of downfalls in the curriculum. First, it's a three year high school. So it takes Cleveland kids(most who are preforming behind the curve), shoves knowledge down their throats just enough so that they can remember it to take a test, and then throws them out in three years(when most of them are not truly ready to be on their own). Yes, we have a 100% graduation rate... but about 50% of the kids who start as Freshman either get kicked out, or transfer back to their home schools. And there's not a lot of "college prep" going on. If the school wanted to be truly "college prep," I'd think that they'd try to mirror the way that college classes are set up, not just in rigor, but in format. Give the kids a syllabus, with weekly assignments, a few short papers, and a longer one(and then actually give constructive criticism on the papers so that students can improve). I've been here for three years and I haven't had to write a paper longer than 5 pages that wasn't just "A graded for completion". CSSM is a betterchoice.

My school is great. The teachers are wonderful. There are actually getting you ready for college and, PSAT OR ACT. The work is hard but, if you work hard and, do what you suppose to do it will be find. There are no ignorant students there also. Everybody there is friendly.

I currently attend Cleveland Early college at John Hay and I LOVE it. our principal is an amazing person and leader along with all of our other teachers. The students are very friendly and close-knit. Especially if you play sports then you meet a lot of people from the other school also. EVERYONE is there to help you, especially the teachers. Failure is not an option and even if you have a high C, it's treated like an F. The whole staff really prepares one for college rigorously. I think every school in the building is a great school to attend, and I would highly recommend this to anyone in the 7th & 8th grades. "Why settle for crumbs when you can have the whole loaf."

My child graduated from John Hay 2010 and has completed her college freshmen year successfully. She is now a sophmore and is enjoying her college academic experience. Which means she is on task and her academic experience from John Hay provided her with the ability and skills to succeed academically and sociably. A shout out to John Hay.

John Hay Early College and John Hay High school as a whole are excellent in every sense of the word. I am a 2011 graduate of Early College at John Hay and during my time there I learned more than I ever did in my life, in addition to that I also took Post secondary work at Tri-C and averaged all A's during my time at Cuyahoga Community College. Currently I am a student at Kent State University and love it. My hard extraneous work at John Hay payed off for me when it was time to not only prepare for college but to apply for college. I was accepted into all my college that I applied to including Ohio State University, Ohio University, and Marietta College as well as my current school Kent State University. I would encourage any student serious about not only their academics but also about their futures to apply to John Hay High School. The statistics don't lie and the 9 out of ten great school rating and the Excellent Ohio Department of Education rating doesn't lie either. It's a stellar school hands down.

John Hay High School received the GreatSchools rating and voted one of the 'Cool Schools' on Fox 8. This school has three great programs: Early College, Science and Medicine, and Architecture and Design. This school is well-deserving of the $20,000. It is a Great School!!! I give this school a five (5) star rating. Keep up the Great work!!

My daughter graduated from Early College at John Hay High School this year (June, 2009). She graduated in three years instead of four, and she also received an 'Honors Diploma'. I highly recommend this school, because 'Education' is the first priority. There is zero tolerance for low GPA's, because the students are taught to strive to be the best.

cleveland school of science and medicine is the best for all students of all races that can come and do well. Now i'm in the 10 grade and that first year was great, i saw many great teachers and students that want to learn. John hay as a whole is like a great Private school in a public setting. Mr.Weber is the greatest and most caring person that this school ever had. I'm proud! and I hope it will get better each year.

John Hay offers that competitive edge and the teachers are so helpful. They really want you to succeed, because they push you. Ms.Frew is an excellent principal here at Early College. I like her very much. She's really encouraging. I encourage studious students to check this school out!

This school gets us prepared for ivy league colleges and puts us above the other high school students. Its challenging but the teachers are always willing to help. An all honors, curriculum, post secondary enrollment options, and caring teachers are just a few of the features offered by the John Hay Campus. This is really a great school for students who want to excel.

My son attends john hay school of architecture and design. His class will be the first graduating class of architecture and design. The school works with many different business's in the community along with a lot of the colleges to provide a college prep atmosphere in the cleveland public school district. The teachers really care about the students and push them to excell. Mediocracy is not accepted. Mrs. Cooper is the principal and she is very hands on with the students. I have her cell phone number programmed into my phone. She is always available for conferences and the school often encourages it. There is a zero tolerance policy and all students must maintain a 3.0 Gpa to stay in the school. I feel as if my son is recieving a private school education in a public school district.
