As a freshman of Cloudland High School, I love my school! I feel like I get a quality education I deserve! They have a lot of extra curricular activities such as band, drama club, and sports, etc. The teachers care about your learning experience. They provide understandable information to prepare you for the future. If you are a first timer, then your classmates will take you right in. It really isn't hard to make friends in this school. If you are looking for a small school with great opportunities, then I would highly recommend you to go to this school!

Cloudland High School is a small school with many opportunities. The school offers a top-notch academic program with lots of tutoring opportunities for struggling students. The Drama program and the Band are excellent, and the teachers truly care about the students.

Cloudland is a very community orientated school. A majority of the teachers and staff are very supportive and work very hard to help all students be successful. They need and welcome more parent involvement. I'm a former student of Cloudland and now an involved parent.

School safety is a concern! Bullying is at an extreme. The school schedule is built around 'ball'. There is favoritism toward ballplayers.

Cloudland is a very good school. We may not have a lot of money to get what we need but we do get educatied. We as students dont learn just math, English, ect. But us students learn responbility. we learn to be young men/woman. We also learn to beleave in ourselvs. We dont get tough just phisically but also mentally also -brittany-

I do agree that Cloudland is a very good school, but, don't think it doesn't have a dark side.I am a former student and I seen alot go on there.For students of minority it can be a very difficult school to attend. Unless of course they play sports. There is alot of racism that goes on there that teachers and the PRINCIPAL don't do anything about. You may think I don't know what I'm talking about, but I do. Not only was I a student but, I was a student of minority. I felt the glory of being a sports player but, i also felt the wrath of being one in a minority group. Cloundland is a very 'educational' (if you will) school but parents should be concerned about what their children are getting educated on. Unless you just absolutly don't care!

Cloudland is a very good school to attend, classes to fit the path you prefer, not to mention the chance to be part of a well known sports program and community. its just a great school to attend.
