    I went to SuccessTech my 10th grade year I didnt go much because of some family issues but while I was there I loved it . The teachers are great the Principal treats everyone equally and there is hardly any bulling . If I could I would go back next year!

    Success tech is very over rated. I was a student here and we barely learned if at all. this school should be rated at the very bottom. The principle does not act like the principle . The teachers do and the assistant principle needs to learn her position.

    I was very unsatisfied with the school student and most staff workers. The students were crule. The teachers behaviors were very unacceptable towards the students. The schools after school activities were poor(in performance) also the schools interior was of only the worst!

    SuccessTech Academy is the best cleveland public high school there is. The small family oriented environment is great. I am a student going into my senior year at SuccessTech and I enjoyed my high school experience.

    I love this school because I've done some of my best work while attending this school.This is the first school that I felt like a family with. the opportunities they offer to us students can't be turned down.

    What makes this school remarkable is the dedication and committment that the staff puts forth. The students really get the best when it comes to extra attention when needed. The staff really makes the effort becuase they care about what they are teaching and how they are teaching. Unfortunately because of it being a public school some programs are not available. But the school is trying to build up. There is now a basketball team a music program a robotics program and more is on the way. More parental support is needed to help the staff continue with their quest. The PTO works strongly with the principal and teachers and is always looking for parents/guardians/family members to come to meetings and offer suggestions and help with fundraising efforts and field trips and class activities.
