Cleveland is a truly unique school! It is the OPPOSITE OF MONROE ELEMENTARY! Monroe has no respect, care nothing about educatin, but Cleveland is the exact opposite! It has great staff, trust me, my friends go to Monroe and their test scores don't improve, but mines and my brother's have! Also the staff support education and talks more about respect unlike other schools!!! If you had a choice and you live in or near the Excelsior district, the best choice is Cleveland!!!
