Cedar Springs High School Reviews
I love the school spirit! I've never seen a school that shows up for each other more than Cedar Springs does; from sporting events to kids struggling will illness like cancer, students and staff are all there. I also love the staff at Cedar; they care for you as an individual and want to see you excel in everything you do. Although Cedar Springs High School is a great place for relationship building, there are a lot of students who don't choose the best life path to take and who display that throughout the halls and in the classrooms. I think one thing Cedar's community could work on is personal evaluations.
There are many positives about CSHS including the courses that are offered. They have a wide variety of AP courses, dual enrollment options, and other college readiness options such as the early middle college program where your associates degree is paid for! On the other hand, one thing I would change, is the class size. Many classes are too large for ideal learning conditions. I was never in a class that was less than 25 students and for many it was hard to deeply understand the material. Overall, the staff and administrators care for their students and their futures. They try really hard to prepare them for college or the workforce.
My experience at Cedar Springs High School has been very good. I enjoy the environment that Cedar's staff and students have created. I have also enjoyed the sports that Cedar offers as well as the way the whole school connects with the community to support kids in the schools that have cancer or the students family members and whatever else may occur within the district. I however feel that the administration could work to provide their students with a few better math and science teachers and work on expanding the district, as it is becoming very crowded.
