    The administration at this school is rude and disrespectful to the parents who attend the school. The school does not care about the students but rather is more worried about how it looks for when people are coming to visit. The projects in the hallway look good but how much time did my child's teacher have to spend working on those projects? Overall the school looks nice on the outside but once you really get to know what is going on in the school you realize it isn't a good place for learning at all.

    I'm a teacher myself so I have a couple of different perspectives of Cleveland Ave. Elementary. My children transferred from Fulton Co. and they have improved by leaps and bounds. This past year my children participated and placed in the science fair performed in several musical programs (both on and off campus) & were involved in a very active girl scout troop. Their reading and math scores also improved greatly. There were also several opportunities for parent involvement as well. Last year the PTA was not very active but I'm sure that will change this year because I am committed to being much more involved. The faculty and staff at Cleveland Ave. take great pride in making sure that the students behave with respect and dignity.

    My oldest son who is now 10 started out at Cleveland at that point I loved the school but now I hate it they do not offer the kids anything academic and they teaching process is slow compared to other Atlanta Schools they test scores are low and I'm just really disappointed my youngest son is now in the 1st grade and this will be his last year here I will be doing a lot of research to get both of them in a good school Middle and Elementary even if I have to relocate to do so a lot of changes need to be made at Cleveland!
