    I would say this school is very average. Not horrible not fantastic. Lots of low income kids but don't think that is affecting my child hugely. I think teachers try.

    I have had two children that have attended this school. One son who is now graduated and one in kindergarten currently. I have had no problems at all. I was surprised how fast my kindergarten student learned to read and write. The teachers are great and all seem to care about the students education. The before and after programs are great for parents who work. Highly recommend this school.

    My son is in first grade at Cleveland Elementary and I could not be happier with his progress. He is being pushed by his teacher to improve reading and math and his homework AR levels and test scores all show growth. It is a very calm environment and I know that if anything does occur with peers the teacher will address it immediately. I also love the new administration.

    My child attended this school and our experience wasn't very good. My child first teacher was prejudice and wasn't a very good teacher nor helpful to the students. My other child second grade teacher was also prejudice and was a poor teacher. She would give the kids alot of work and didn't reward any of the other students except the white ones. Spoke with the principal many times she was nice but did not try to resolve the problem. I would not recommend this school.

    I believe my daughter is receiving a fair education at Cleveland Elementary School but far from the stellar education I expected from reading past reviews.WeI moved here last year and purchased a home solely for the purpose of our daughter being in the Cleveland School District. I was particularly disappointed that they offer no gifted education programs at all. They will test your child offer results and then tell you that your child's education will continue status quo because they have no money. How can they be rated a 9 or 10 if they don't offer ANY gifted education programs? If you want your child to get an average education this school will meet your needs if you want a great education for your child - think again.

    I have had two children attend Cleveland Elementary School and up until now I have been extremely pleased. I find it very difficult to communicate with staff. I don't know if the new schools opening in the area have pulled Cleveland Elementary down or if they have just lost touch. Very disappointed parent.

    We bought a home in this area three years ago when my daughter was only two mainly because we heard so many great things about this school. She finally started kindergarten this year and Cleveland Elementary has yet to disappoint! It is everything and more than I could ever want for my daughter's education. Her teacher and TA are incredible extremely knowledgable and it is evident that they love what they do. I go there at least once a week whether it be for eating lunch with my daughter or volunteering and the staff is always so kind welcoming and helpful. There are so many opportunities for parents to become involved. My daugher is learning more than I could have ever imagined. She adores her teacher and fellow students and is always so excited to go to school. I could not be any happier with this school!

    My daughter is new to Cleveland Elementary this year. She is in 5th grade which can make a move really difficult. The transition to this school was effortless. She has made good friends and has an amazing teacher. The school has a great variety of things for their children to do like chorus and the morning news. They really make the students feel appreciated important and engaged. It is a wonderful enviroment for learning. I am thankful we found this wonderful school.

    I have been extremely pleased with Cleveland Elementary. The teachers are very welcoming inviting. My child looks forward to going to school each day. He comes home with new information he has learned everyday. I believe the teachers are amazing. I am a teacher at another school and I have not moved him to be with me because of how pleaed I have been with Cleveland.

    I have a daughter in the third grade at Cleveland Elementary. We just moved to this part of town from another school in the area. My children have attended schools in Wake County as well. I could not be more pleased with this school. My daughter's teacher is amazing and my daughter adores her. Not only does she like her teacher classmates and school she also looks forward to going every day and is excelling and growing academically. The office staff is also always pleasant and courteous and hlep to create an atmosphere of fun. I am so happy we are here! Keep up the great work!

    I have a second-grader at this school. We moved here from Brazil in Jan 2007 and my son was not 100% fluent in English. Since the beginning his teacher has shown a willingness to work with him and help him achieve his best! He loves the school and is excelling academically. I am very impressed with the teacher's work. Besides his teacher he loves the extracurricular activities and the teachers are great as well. The school encourages parental involvement. Further the whole staff of Cleveland Elementary has always been very responsive and courteous when I need any information. Congratulations to you all!

    Cleveland Elementary is one of the best schools in N. Carolina. However I do not care for the fact that 1st graders are put in mobile units. they should be used for older kids only. Safety is an issue (bathrooms) I was informed they go on the buddy system however 2 first grade little girls walking outside to the bathroom is 'not' safe! Many of us parents feel this way. We see no reason for first graders to be in the units not when we have 3rd and 4th graders there (yes I realize they are using them also but we should not have 1st graders in the mobile units.

    Cleveland Elementary is by far the best school in North Carolina. My children come home excited about what they learn and desire to learn more. Test scores are important and are excellent indeed however the total care of the child is by far the best I've seen. I am proud to have my children attend Cleveland!

    Cleveland Elementary's principal administration teachers and parents work together like a well oiled machine. They are a hard working innovative caring group who's success is shown in their test scores. I am not just pleased but excited to have my children attend Cleveland Elementary.
