Max S Hayes High School Reviews
I went to this School
But it was back in the mid 70's when it was an all boys school & you went there to learn a trade. I took up Automotive Service & repair. At that time it was the best in the State for learning a trade. But since the early 80's the school has gone down hill from what I've heard that is. I graduated 76th in my Class of 1977.
My boyfriend goes there currently and he loves it. He says how the classes help him out a lot and the auto programs are outstanding.
I actually attend Max Hayes now and will be graduating next year... Its a really good school i love it... Yeah there may be a couple of people that arent focused but others are above :) In order for you to love or like that school you need to be passionate about your trade
How do I get a copy of my transcript. I graduated from Max S. Hayes Vocational High School in May 1975.
This school is absolutely awful. It may not be as out of control and as poorly educated as some other Cleveland public schools, but it's still very disappointing. The kids there are loud, obnoxious, rude and not at all serious about their future. They bully and harrass others and are inconsiderate of everyone around them. The education is extremely horrendous also. Most of the teachers at this school have no idea what they're talking about, and the cirriculum is so far behind. I'm being taught material here that I learned back in the 6th grade; I feel as if I'm getting dumber every minute that I stay here! Another reason this school is terrible is because the building is a complete death trap. Everything is falling apart; windows are broken and taped up, and tiles on the floor are coming out, and the bathrooms are disgusting and always have a leak coming out of the toilets, that sprays out everywhere. I know there will be a brand new building for the school in a few years, but that doesn't mean they can't repair anything in the mean time. The only reason why I ever came to this school was because I had to. Unfortunately I wasn't able to attend a private high school like I had wanted to because of financial reasons, and this was the closest, "safest" school around me. I'm so glad I get to transfer to another school for my 11th grade year because, quite frankly, I probably would have committed suicide if I had to continue attending this school next year.
My son started 10th grade at Max Hayes this year and I've been very impressed with how well this school is being run. Finally, we found a school that had an atmosphere that's conductive to learning; not just a social gathering place for out of control teenagers. I now have confidence that my son is in a school that will help him prepare for his future, and also show him that his previous bad experiences with schools doesn't have to be accepted. Hopefully, we found Max Hayes in time to prevent my son from disregarding school because of the shortcomings of many of the other schools.
Max Hayes is much different from the other Cleveland Public Schools that I've experienced in the past. It has a much smaller student body, and APPEARS TO ALWAYS BE ORDERLY AND MAINTAINED. The principal, guidance counselor and teachers have always been friendly, easy to talk to, and willing to take the time concerning my son's education.
My son had been attending an online school because of our dissatisfaction with poorly managed, under supplied, and out of control schools. I was concerned when he said he wanted to go to Max Hayes for the automotive courses that are available there. Our previous experience with other Cleveland Public Schools, and even one of the charter school in the Cleveland district, had left us very disappointed in their performance.
My experience with Max Hayes is not the same as it's been with other Cleveland Schools. I hope the administration takes a look at Max Hayes in finding the direction our schools should be heading.
