Cleveland High School is an excellent high school in spite of the fact that the school has had a marked increase in student population without benefit of increased teachers to lower teacher/pupil ratios. There are many excellent teachers throughout this school in a variety of subject areas. Our faculty has learned to do more with less because CHS has not been a priority with system administrators due to their laser focus on elementary and middle schools. Our school of excellence could very well be in peril if the needs for expanded faculty, class offerings, and building needs are not addressed immediately. Our system is funded well for city systems in the state, we just need to do a better job of maintaining the only city school in our system that will serve each and every child. Cleveland High has fabulous teachers, coaches, and administration. They just need help from the top.
CHS is a great school! The principal is respected by all. He is very approachable and easy to work with. Parent involvement is high and encouraged. The honors courses at Cleveland High School are certainly equal to the best private schools around. And the marching band program is the best in the state!
I think that the school is amazing especially the choral department. We also have a new library and brand new computers. A state of the are cooling and heating system and great teachers. Although the math is alittle weak the english and science classes are exceptionally great. Mr. Gibson and Mrs. Pace have made a big impact in my life. You two rock!
Academic programs are weak, the honors classes were easier than the regular courses. CHS left me completley unprepared for college. I achieved a 24 my ACT during my Junior year at that school, and I attribute very little to the shool. Poor leadership, and even worse dicipline. As a former student (class 03), I felt like I was in prision there. The faculty is always watching over your shoulder. Teachers are lazy, power-tripping, and just want to get into everyone's home business. The school is getting on the verge of overcrowding too. The library is bad, and never was used. The computers are bad too, except for in the new additions. I agree w/ the previous post about the band dept. Mr. Burton and the marching band was the only thing that made going to that school bearable.
