This was the best place for me at a time where I felt completely disconnected from everything. Best alternative high school in Cleveland, the staff truly cared and took time out for the students! I remember my days there fondly and can't believe it's been 25 years since I graduated.

My son is a student of Gerson. They really helped my son, and we are so grateful to everyone who works there. My son really did an awesome job, thanks to teachers who cared and took the time to help him and all the other students. I wish we had a school like this when I was in school. I love Gerson.

This was a wonderful school to attend. The teachers really cared about us and were very good at their job. I met alot of wonderfull people there and continued on to college in the state of florida for 2 years. What I liked most were the teachers such as fran and mark who I had great relationships with. In the end I think that was the perfect place for me to attend.

I lOVE this school, I tell people all the time that this school saved my life! If your child is having hard times in school, but you know that they have the potential... send them here. The staff is the best!!! I was to attend Shaw High School, but my mom opted to send me here instead. I picked up a lot of life lessons here. I will forever be greatful to Mr. Dunne, Fran, Pat, Tracey, William... Respect, Love, And Peace... Fred...
