Cedar Grove High School Reviews

I have attended Cedar Grove High from freshman year until now, senior year. I absolutely love my high school and would not have wanted to spend the last three years of school anywhere else. The atmosphere is great and very family oriented. Most of the teachers care about students' individual education and take the time to understand their students. Although I genuinely love my school, there is always room for improvement. One thing I would want to see changed at my school is to have an auditorium added. When we have school events like award ceremonies and induction ceremonies, we are forced to have those events in the cafeteria or the gym. I would also like to change the rules of lunch. I think students should be able to leave campus to get food because not everyone likes or can eat school lunch. I hope this review was helpful!

For the last 4 years my experience at Cedar Grove Highschool has been excellent! At CGHS you are treated like family the minute you walk in. I have attended Cedar Grove for the duration of my entire Highschool career and even though no one really enjoys school Cedar Grove makes you feel at home! Not to mention our excellent athletic program, winning two state championships since I’ve been in Highschool. The materials and aesthetics of our school aren’t the best but we make up for it through our culture, academic performance, and athletics. That concludes the review of my Highschool experience
Cedar Grove High School, the home of the Saints. I attend a school with a five-star football team. This team is the only thing that hold us together, barely. Majority of the kids that attend Cedar Grove lack the ability to stay focused on academics. Instead, my schoolmates rather give attention to ignorance such as fights. At times I feel as if my friends and I are the only people who act as the intellectuals we are. The teachers are great at their jobs, but the students’ unwillingness to learn is ridiculous. The administration tries to do the best they can, but the troubles and bad spirits brought into my school come from an outside source, their homes. Although many of the parents are interactive, there are many that are not and it shows. I also do not feel safe when I am at school. There are police, ambulances, and/or lock downs at my school on a consistent basis. I should be able to attend school without worrying about my life and the life of my friends being in danger.
