    "I graduated from the Humanities program in '91. Even back then the curriculum was very rigorous. But the teachers made it fun for students to think, to get challenged. What I remember the most about my high school experience there is that there was a lot of work but I enjoyed being there. I still miss my teachers and many fellow students."

    "As a parent of a student who attends Cleveland's Humanities Magnet (also known as CORE), I would like to reiterate this school's wonderful qualities and address some of the concerns brought up in the previous reviews. First of all, this is indeed a rather large urban school with a population of 3200. That being said, the CORE community--made up of about 900 students--is incredibly close-knit, which makes for a nice blend of the small-town and big-city experience. Furthermore, though it is true that budget cuts have crippled many programs at Cleveland, the same can be said for most other public schools in LAUSD and across the country. In fact, thanks to the dedication of CORE teachers, parents, and students, the economic difficulties have had no detrimental effect on the education that my child and her peers receive. Finally, I would like to point out that Cleveland's CORE program was one of 28 schools all across America to win the National Magnet Schools of America Award of Excellence. Sending my child to Cleveland is the best decision I could have made for her. She is incredibly happy, which is not something most people can say about their high school experiences."

    "This is a large, urban public school. That being said, I found that my children have received excellent educations from mostly wonderful teachers. The Magnet program is amazing. It is a Jewel in the LAUSD system. Other teachers outside of the magnet, have been mostly good, but not all of them. My children have been afforded some wonderful opportunities and experiences. One of my only contentions is how demanding the program is and that I believe that it could put some kids at a disadvantage for college. The competition is so stiff. It might be easier for a bright student to place higher in another school. But on the other hand, these kids graduate and score highly on the SATs and really know how to write and express themselves. My eldest has found UC Berkeley easy compared to the CORE Program. I hope they keep their standards high. One other point...magnet students cannot take many APs. Again, not sure if this hurts for college or not."

    "The only good thing about this school is the Core Program, aside from this everything else is in need of major improvement"

    "I have had quite a few problems at this school. They NEVER answer the phone! I have been trying to contact the school this morning to no avail. I am calling as I write this. They have had 2 LOCK DOWNS since school started 8-15-2012 so far. Some of my daughters possessions, HER CLOTHING, were stolen out of a LOCKED classroom, they had no interest in finding out what happened to her clothes and asked us if she was sure she wore pants! I AM QUESTIONING IF MY CHILD SHOULD REMAIN AT THIS SCHOOL. THEY BOAST THAT THIS IS A WONDERFUL SCHOOL, BUT A FEW PARENTS ARE HAVING SOME SERIOUS DOUBTS!!"
