The best aspect of Cedar Creek is the dedication the teachers have for the students. They consistently made sure the students have an engaging, informed experience in their classes - not to mention the extremely high rate of participation in clubs/sports/activities. However, I do believe the school has space to grow in terms of college prep. Unlike its sister school, Absegami, CCHS does not provide AP practice books to the students. In my transition to college, I felt unprepared and often like I was going through the process alone. Overall, a fantastic school, great teachers, great students, great experience during and after-school, but possibly has room to grow in transitioning students as they graduate.

Best high school I have ever attended! Small class size and new facilities made learning there very enjoyable. They have an excellent blend of sports and academics. Cedar Creek makes it easy to tailor your high school experience to your needs and goals. I highly suggest looking into their Environmental and Engineering magnet programs. Go Pirates!
During my four years at Cedar Creek High School, I was able to meet many new people, be push to do better, and learn new things during the whole process. I was always treated like family and help was available if needed. The teachers never complained when a student needed extra help. They would stay after school for hours. They would never give up on the students and pushed you to do better for yourself. The teachers and staff always believed in me more than I did in myself at times. They always gave a listening ear if I needed a person to talk to. They celebrated my accomplishes, including crying tears of joy when made it into my dream school. Even with being a woman who wanted to go into science, I was never treated any different. I was welcomed into the science club and STEM programs with open arms. My experience at Cedar Creek High School overall was amazing. I made many long term friends and lifelong memories.
