Cleveland Elementary School is one of the Allentown City School District's inner-city schools. The school district does all it can to support its underprivileged students and their families, many of whom do not speak English and are struggling to learn it. More than half of students at Cleveland are Latino. Cleveland School is also struggling academically rating a 3 out of 10. However it rates 4 stars from past student and parent reviews. Most if not all of the students' families live at or below the federal poverty level.

This school need a lot of improvement , comunication between parents and staff , the principal sometimes talk to you but sometimes he pass by and pretend the he doesn't know you , teachers years before they used to go outside and watch the kid now in this days they can see the kids outside running and jumping fighting and pushing each others and don't care they just care about the pay check

I had both my children in Cleveland Elemetary School. The principal and teachers go out of their way to work with each child to build the strenghts. As well help them in areas they may have weakness. They make sure the parents are involved and made aware of improvements the school may be going through. Cleveland School incourages the parents to be involved in the day to day activities in the school, so it may benefit the children.

I am a former Cleveland student and I loved that school. I wish it was also a high school. I went there for 3rd and 4th grade and I am now in 8th grade. Cleveland was my first base. We had so much fun. All the staff was always trying there best for kids to exceed their limits. We went to so many trips. At Cleveland, I was taught so much of what I know today. I now go to school and New York and when I got here in the 5th grade people were like 'wow' when they seen how much I knew at my age. I knew things 7th graders didnt know. Cleveland was the best choice my mother made because by making things fun but at the same time staying on top of things and being focused, Cleveland staff helped me achieve goals I never would have achieved.-Thankyou!

This school needs money. Many of the teachers don't know common spanish phrase which I feel is needed in a school where over half of the students are Hispanic. Many students come from spanish speaking countries and know little or no English. The teachers who don't know spanish get frustrated and they don't help the students feel welcomed into the classroom.
