When I was a student 7 years ago, I would totally agree with the 9/10 rating. But based on the disgusting actions of the teachers during the recent strike, I would say the place is a 0/10. I looked at Chicago last year and thought to myself, "That would never happen in Strongsville. Our community is too cohesive and our teachers care about their students." That was before these teachers started berating substitutes "who dared" to fill in for the classes they weren't teaching (you know, the same substitutes they have relied on for years to pick up their slack on sick days and vacation days), before they started to trash the classrooms of teachers "who dared" to cross the picket line and TEACH, before they acted like animals while crying, "It's for the children" (Ha!). MANY (nearly all) teachers that I had while I was a student, were all active during this pathetic display. I have lost all respect for the school (No, not the board. The board didn't make them act the way they did.) since this strike occurred. These teachers even tried to manipulate their students to use them for their sick games. No thanks SHS, you're not what you used to be.

This school/district is not what e veryone makes it to be. The high school is so crowded that the students are just a number. There is no help from teachers and or staff. I pulled my son out after 1 semester in the 9th grade. He was an B student at middle schI ool, then when moved to the high school the grades dropped and he fell through the cracks, I never received any callls until it was too late. I enrolled him in online public school and the grades came up and I could be more involved in his schooling. Pulling my boys out of Strongsville CIty Schools was the best decision. Can't wait to move out of this snobby city. Worst place to livel.

Strongsville is a very upscale city with everything to offer! Beautiful homes,classy merchants and restaurants but most of all wonderful schools! We moved here from California and our $550,000 home is a mansion here compared to LA! Our daughter is in the Strongsville HS Band program which rivals ANY college! its just excellent! Her honors classes also challenge her to the fullest! We are so happy we chose Strongsville as our home!

If you can afford to live in the beautiful homes of Strongsville, most definitely do so! The High School is excellent with a superior 300 member band program that my son loved, he was in all honors classes which helped him to receive a wonderful ivy league college scholarship. Excellent school!

During several visits to the high school over the summer of 2009, I observed first hand, administrators, faculty, and professional staff working collaboratively to create an enriched learning environment in preparation for the return of students. After witnessing these educators put the needs of the student body first, irrespective of union, contract, department, and personal issues, I knew at that very moment I had found a good school for my kids.

As a former student, I think that Strongsville is a very great school. It has many programs, but more importantly, great teachers. A lot of highly educated and devoted teachers made the school more personable for such large classes. I was very pleased with my experiences. Thank you to all the teachers and staff that made education not such a grooling process :)

As a former student, I was highly pleased with quality of education I received. I was well prepared for college after graduation. There are many extracurricular activities to choose from. The parents were able to be as involved as they wanted to be.

Athletic program needs a shakeup, mostly at the top. Questionable ethics and prevalent good ole boy network.

Excellent School which continues to get better and better. Well rounded program with focus on sports, academics, band, drama, etc. Prepares students well for life (college, technical school, work).

Not much emphasis on providing support for students who need it. If your child will never require assistance of any kind this is probably a good place to educate them. If, however, they have need of any kind of program, you can bet that it won't be provided here.

The quality of academic programs is based upon the child. If he/she is above average or higher, there are no issues. If they are average or have any type of learning disabilities, they are unable to gear the programs toward them. The extracurricular activities are much more important than the academics, football/basketball being the top two. Parent involvement is not encouraged unless the parent(s) have no qualms with the system. To receive answers to negative questions are ignored. The Superintendent and Principals are nonresponsive. The system has a tendancy to 'move' around administrators and teachers that are not meeting standards/expectations.

Unfortunately, the school system is all about the money. While the kids get almost everything they want, they don't get important things they need. These things are discipline, support and regular psychological support. Many Strongsville children are in need of help and it is kept a big secret. The kids in Strongsville are as bad off psychologically as the kids in Cleveland. The difference is in Cleveland they are encouraged and allowed to talk about it. In Strongsville, its a big secret.

My son is getting an excellent education at Strongsville H.S. that will prepare him for college. Music, Art and Sports are favorites of his and there is plenty to keep him busy. While attending the conferences and school functions, it is easy for me to notice that many parents are very interested in what their children are doing.
