I completely hate this school. The teachers are lazy the students are disrespectful and trashy. The cafeteria food sucks. We get a new principal every school year. I've gone to Cleveland my whole school life and had nothing but problems. I'm a senior now and moving to splendora and glad to be out of that mess they call "Cleveland school district". They're really strict with their test scores and class grades. Like, I passed all my classes and they didn't give me my credits. At all. Overall this school is not the greatest. I don't recommend this place to anybody. Some more: the teachers are more worried about what the kids are wearing than their education. They don't really care what the students names are. (I had a teacher my sophomore year call me "hey girl with the green hair" until the last week of school,) the teachers don't really take attendance. They just look around and guess. That's why I "missed" soo much school. The principals slack at their job. They don't take care of business. The only good part in CHS is the JROTC. I was that program for 3 years. Go Sgt and Col !!

I've only attended one other school disrict and at first, Cleveland was a lot easier and a lot more out of control than where i was previosly enrolled. Now that I am in high school, I realize that it is a good school and does put out good students. I think our problem isn't the teacheres or the school district itself, but simply students not wanting to try. Despite receiving criticsim from many people, I think Cleveland is one of the better schools around Southeast Texas!

I am currently attending CHS..Personally in my opionion I agree that the staff at our school are more worried about what we are wearing instead of what we learn...and with the TAKS it's pointless we dont learn what we actually need for this test thats why our academic scores seem to be so low. If they worried more about what we learned and if we actually had teachers who care things might possibly work out for us but until the teachers figure out what we are supposed to do it will not do us any good...

I recently graduated from CHS. When I got to the university that I'm now attending I was anything but prepared for the level of work. I was not one of the kids who slaked off and just did enough to get by I did all of my work and got A's. Then I got to college and found out that the how behind Cleveland really is. They should spend less time on weather or not someone's shirt is tucked in and more time on academics and giving the kids who want to go to college the knowledge that they are going to need so they are not as behind when they get there. Don't get me wrong a lot of the teachers really care about teaching, but they need to be allowed to teach not prepare for the test, or check dress code every class.

I am currently attending Cleveland High School, even though we are not acceptable by the state. We still have great teachers. Are extracurriclar activities are great we have AFJROTC, Band, FFA and other programs. And we just got done building a brand new high school to help us to be more cofident and that it will be safer for us and a nice place to call our home school. So befor any one talks about this school needs to come vist it. Thank you

Currently a new builing is being built so CHS is extremely large and it is also around a good enviornment. New classes have been added as career specific courses. The renewal of the school is great and so is the new attitude!

I am currently going to cleveland high school. I think the office people try to hard to make there not be any fights or anyting that they don't pay any attention to out academic achievements...Or should I say non achievements. I don't think they try hard enough to actually make our school an exemplary school.

I attended Cleveland High and graduated in 1999. I know that many people feel the administration and teachers are the cause for low morals and low achievement. I would have to say that is due more on the parents of the students involved. I am a sucess because not only did I have help from wonderful teachers (especialy American History, Band, and Chemistry)but I also had love from home and church. Cleveland High School is a public school. Those who work there can only do as much as the government will alow them to! In my case, I hope that they know they have done a wonderful job preparing me for my future.

This is a good school district, regardless of all of the negative comments. If you just look around at some of our recent graduates you will find doctors, lawyers,dentist, playwrights, probation officers and many other professionals. Our kids just don't get the credit that they deserve. We have had so many successful kids that have graduated from our schools.

Drugs, sex, violence, low test scores, but good sports, and a wonderful band. These are the things that plague and make this school. Hopefully things will change from how they have been now that this school has new leadership. The least we can do is pray that it will and perhaps already has changed. Parents will enjoy the friendly staff and perhaps a few other aspects of this school as for myself I in the future will never send my children to this school district without there being a total make-over.

I attended Cleveland HIgh school a few years ago. I read some of the previous comments and I was unsatisfied with the negativity. I am currently an 'A' student at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN. I have CHS to thank for the college preparation. The school has a great sense of pride and the extracurricular activities are outstanding.

I attended Cleveland also, and when we were in school the level of everything was better. We were cared about and tought things that would carry you through life after school. Now that I have come back to see, the main emphasis now is how you dress, passing the state exams. They have younger teachers who come here to get a couple of years experience and then leave to get a higher pay somewhere else. There isn't that strong of a community backing like when I was attending here. It still doesn't fall solely on the school system either, it invovles the community too. The kids have a no care attitude, they just do enough to get by, they aren't thinking about the future once high school is over. Too many of them slowly become statistics due to peer pressure, not enough ouside positive influences, not enough functions as well as places to have functions to keep them occupied from the outside negatives that they may come in contact with. Truly there are many factors that you could look at. All of these stated and much more are going to have to be looked and implemented in order to help our future generations, meaning everyone has to do their part. The school system is on the rise though, they are getting better, but education still starts at the home(parents).

I attended CHS several years ago and was not satisfied with the curriculum. I briefly moved to another school district in Texas my junior year, and realized just how far behind Cleveland was academically. Honors classes in Cleveland were more like remedial classes elsewhere.

We moved here from Arizona and our son was failing there. Here he has done a complete turn around and is getting As and Bs. He likes the teachers and has commented on how friendly everyone is. I am very thankful that they helped him to get on the right track again

The staff is very friendly and helpful when needed. The principals are always visible at the school and extracurricular activities. Some of the teachers could be a little more patience and eager to assist the students. But overall the school seems to be average.

The principals are below average and that is only when you are able to get hold of them. Many of the students, even after attending this school for three or four years, do not know who the principals are until graduation when they make an appearance to see the graduates leave.
