I loved that I was able to get involved with the arts and was challenged academically, but there are some serious problems going on in that school administratively. Dress code is always a daily battle with the administrators, they punish students for discussing politics freely and maturely, and prioritize test scores over mental health. Counseling services do very little for their students, and I know my counselor changed every year for whatever reason. The teachers are phenomenal and love their jobs, but everything else just constantly feels like a daily battle.

I absolutely love this school! It has an excellent Music Department, and an award winning marching band. Recently, there have been new improvement to the cafeteria menu; and it is absolutely wonderful. The students have access to a salad bar, chicken sandwich, cheese burger, spicy chicken patty sandwich, pizza, a yogurt meal, as well as the daily special, every single day!
The athletics at CRHS is also top notch with many coaches having earned the title of Coach of the Year!
Lastly, if you're at CRHS expect to learn and have fun every single day. Teachers are wonderful, and there is a place for all type of students.
For the most part, I've greatly enjoyed my time at Caesar Rodney. The teachers are awesome, the curriculum is challenging, and the sports and clubs are numerous and diverse. The administration is the only thing I sometimes have a problem with, in that they sometimes do a poor job of handling personal situations of students, and are rather tyrannical in the way they treat students who voice displeasure with school actions (example - the school censoring students on their facebook page who argued that they should allow a national walkout without punishment). Other than that, I adore this school and couldn't be happier with my time here.
