Cleveland High School is well known for its International Baccalaureate (IB) program, as it is one out of only two IB schools in the Portland School District. Now, I bet you’re wondering what the difference between AP (Advanced Placement) and IB. Well, they are almost exactly the same, except IB is more rigorous. Cleveland also has the option of working towards and receiving an IB Diploma. To do this, you must test in at least 6 subjects (outside of school), and do a total of 150 hours of CAS (creative, active, service). Other than this, Cleveland has many other electives and programs available. There also is a dual immersion program available: Mandarin and Spanish. The feeder school is Hosford Middle School.
