Crab Orchard High School Reviews

I would probably chose this school again if I had the chance. I would choose it because it has an amazing foundation of community support. Also, everyone makes you feel welcome. Another reason I would choose this school again is because you get to know almost every student/teacher personally. Since this school is so small and close knit, you are basically family. It has a great atmosphere and I absolutely love it.

Crab Orchard High School is located in a small, friendly community. The teachers personally know all of the students and there is a low student to teacher ratio.
Since we are a small school, we can't offer many of the big clubs. However, we do offer FCCLA, FCA, book club, art club, strategic studies, beta club, scholar bowl, and a few others. I would say that a lot of students take part in FCCLA and FCA, but the same 10-15 students will try to be in beta, scholar bowl, and strategic studies, but that is because they are more school oriented than the other students.
