One of the things I most enjoyed about Cleveland is the volume of opportunity the students have available to them. Whether you're interested in the arts, athletics, science, mathematics, leadership, or speech and debate, you have the chance to be involved both in and outside of the classroom. The students are really encouraged to take control of their educations and of their high school experience. I've witnessed the school evolve and take strides to be a more open-minded and academically challenging environment, all because of it's students' dedication to making positive change. If you like to be involved and passionate, you will flourish in this school.

It's been a couple of years since I last attended Cleveland High School, but compared to my schooling right now in Illinois, I do not have a flattering impression of the school. The teachers were okay, though they didn't have that vested interest in the students and often times their lessons fell flat. The schooling system is block scheduled, so teachers have an hour and a half to teach their lessons. Some of this time is utilized wisely, but mostly a lot of the work is busywork, involving filling out useless paperwork and wiling away the time. Overall, the Freshmen experience was okay but nothing that sparked my desire to learn. Comparing the teachers I currently have and the ones I had in Freshmen year, it becomes obvious that the Portland public schooling system does not really strive to encourage individualistic thinking and curiosity, rather they focus more on testing and how to get the kids passing grades for their salaries.

There's an overall air of carelessness. Students are more involved in their social life than trying to learn and cliques are thing here. Once you become an established part of a certain group of kids then good luck trying to makes friends outside your friend groups. The overall usage of drugs and alcohol isn't as rare as parents would like to think, but this is a general trend in all of Portland Public Schools. Additionally, there is a distinct lack of community feel and school/students do not harbor any school spirit. Additionally, the school colors are disgusting: "gold" and green. Gold as in a horrid yellow that is reminiscent of the color concentrated urine.
