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.

Over the past few years I've attended Cleveland, almost all of the teachers I have had, have been very good and knowledgeable teachers. During my junior and senior years, I've noticed that more of my teachers are really passionate about what they are teaching, and are excited to teach us about the topic. Of course there have been the few teachers who have been teaching for awhile and who don't seem to care about their classes or students. However, most of the teachers I have experienced have been very thoughtful and intelligent about what they were teaching and to their students.

There are a great variety of activities and sports available, from animal rights club to dragonboating to speech and debate. Whether you're an intellectual, artist, athlete, or a social butterfly theres something for you. Hiwever, only a few activities receive attention, such as our football team which receives the most attention but hasn't won a game all season.

And since there is only one gym, its hard for certain sports to find practice time, which creates hostility between coaches and athletes of different sports.
