Overall, my experience at Craig High School was incredibly memorable. The various programs and extracurricular activities were the best part of the school. A lot of my best memories came from involvement in music and clubs. However, one experience that I did not enjoy in high school is the structure of the team sports. The selection for athletes has a clear bias favoring 'Booster Club' families and those who participated in certain club sports. This unfair selection has such a large impact on students' overall happiness, level of confidence, etc.

My experience with Craig High School has had many, many ups and downs, much like any other high school student. But this school has given me the best four years of my life. I’ve met so many people who I can consider lifelong friends and acquaintances. I have rarely, if ever, had a bad experience with a teacher here. I competed in three sports each year of high school, and created bonds that I didn’t know I had the capacity to make with my teammates. I often find myself missing going to school due to COVID-19, which is something I don’t think students at other schools can say. Janesville Craig is one of my favorite places to be.
I loved going to Craig High School because I was welcomed with open arms into a friend group and had amazing teachers that would take their personal time to sit down just to make sure I understood the content. I learned how to become a leader myself and had equal opportunities at a number of things. The only reason I cannot rate the school perfect is due to the easier classes that smarter people take in order to retain a good grade. However, our high school is dealing with this, but I still feel that many students might not push to do their hardest if they don't have to.
