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!

I liked how supportive the staff at Cedar Crest High School was. I appreciated how much they tried to do for there students that were looking to further themselves outside the walls of learning. I feel there was a lack of preparedness for college life and college academics. I feel they focus to much on people going straight into the work force rather than people that plan to attend big universities or local colleges. In all I enjoyed my time as a student at Cedar Crest High School. Go Falcons!
I was a transfer student in the middle of Sophomore year from a school across the country. Cedar Crest was about 1.5 times the size of my old school, and I was a bit frightened to have to start anew. My first week was the week of their finals. Being the new student is tough, but when everyone is busy studying for finals and stressed out, a whole other level is added. Despite these factors, Cedar Crest's teachers and students made the transition as easy as possible. Within days, members of the Track team became my friends. I was brought to a Drama club meeting by three people. They were able to make this daunting school friendly and familiar. Two years later, I'm preparing to graduate in the top 10% of my class, a Varsity athlete, and a proud Cedar Crest Falcon. That is the impact CCHS makes.
