Cedar Crest might already be in my past, but prepared me for an amazing future. Lebanon County is a small town, and everyone knows everyone in a small town. But Cedar Crest sports, and clubs were a great part of me growing up. It is a super safe area, and I never was afraid to go to school. They offer a diverse amount of clubs for anyone and everyone. Personally I played varsity lacrosse and tennis all four years of where I earned 8 varsity letters, Prom committee, homecoming court, honors society, three different choir groups etc... I had the best possible experience growing up and going to school where I could feel welcomed and thrive toward where I am now in my present. High School can be hard no matter where you are and at Cedar Crest there was never much bullying, and that kind of an atmosphere really inspires much more positivity and creativity. I am proud to be an Alumni Falcon!

My experience with Cedar Crest High School was amazing. They were so ready to help me with any questions I had about transferring over and supported me the entire way. Transferring as a senior was difficult as I had to leave my friends and past teachers, but the student body / teachers were so impressive in fitting me in right away. I felt like family!
Cedar Crest has gives their students plenty of resources and opportunities to follow their dream goals. With Project LIFE being mandatory for graduation, students are pushed to discover and plan for what they want to do in their lives after high school. Teachers there are always willing to help their students reach potentials that even they may not see while also encouraging their ideals of the school being one big "Falcon Family". There are many clubs in the school, ranging from Anime Club to Archery Club and even a club dedicated to students gathering to play card games. Of course, more serious clubs exist as well such as their government oriented clubs and debate teams.
Over all, Cedar Crest is a good school, but is not without it's flaws. Pipes are often found to be rusted, flooding and mold has happened quite a few times during my four years, and the roof often leaks when it rains. Safety is not a concern though as it is always in the forefront of the minds of teachers and staff.
