Bad, Bad, Bad. Don't go to this school, I go to it and there are NO AP classes in Freshmen and your sophomore year. The only available AP classes in junior year is AP Calculus, AP Chemistry, and AP Computer Science. This is my second year at this school and I can say from my observations that the male teachers are generally better then the female teachers. Your freshmen year will be great because you have really good teachers in your freshmen year but then in your sophomore year the quality of the teachers go down. I would like to note that you learn 10th grade humanities in 9th grade and you learn 8th grade humanities in 10th grade. Your last project for 10th grade humanities will be a art project where you paint. YOU DON'T LEARN LITERATURE OR ANYTHING, I HAVEN'T EVEN LEARNED ANY HISTORY IN MY HISTORY CLASS!

Cleveland is not a very good school to go to if you want to have a serious education. The materials and classes offer can be interesting but the learning environment is somewhat below average. Most of the students are not hardworking and some teachers just like to give easy assignments for students to do. The expectations are low and students will freak out about their abilities once they're in college.

Not the best school to go to for students who want to be challenged in class. There are no honors classes, and AP is only offered for juniors and seniors. Project-baselearnt ing, the STEM program, and extra high school credits initially draws you in, but the irresponsible and lazy students(the majority of freshman anyway) stress out the teens serious about school. For the first 3 months, most of what I learned was how to research, put info on a PowerPoint/ Prezi, and be a manager to my peers. It was very disappointing to figure out that this was basically what Cleveland was actually like(when most students aren't hardworking). Advice: Project based learning works best when students don't need to be constantly told to do their work. Transferring to a different high school next semester, A very frustrated 9th grader

Excellent, dedicated, engaging teachers. Small class sizes. Ethnically diverse student body. My son looks forward to going to school every single day. A little-known gem in SE Seattle. The PTSA is small but really cares about the school.

First of all im a student that attended cleveland. This is a fantastic school. Split into 3 different academies. Life science, and engineering/design for, the freshman and sophomores, and the college ready academy. The freshman and sophomores each get their own laptops to use for the year. Everything is project based so students interact and work together to get things done. Students just learn better that way. All the teachers are great.

Cleveland needs more staff for hall monitoring. Students need more writing assignments (essays and research papers) They are not being prepared for college. Those types of classes should not be offered only to achievers.
