Craig high school is a large school, with so many offerings. I have options to be able to take just about any class that has helped shape what I want to do with the rest of my life. But, if you can not find a class that suits you, Craig has a Youth-Options program that lets you take classes at the local public university (sometimes for free)! And you can receive college credit. The majority of my teachers have been very knowledgeable in the subject area that they teach. One thing I would like to see change is the overall obnoxious clique culture at Craig. Not so much "mean girls" just many people who do not want to step outside of their close circles of friends to interact with others. Most sports are competitive to get into and have a good program.

After transferring to Craig my sophomore year, I was pleased. Then I grew to understand that the quality of my education was significantly altered. I thought that it was okay since I was finally happy. But now, with my senior year coming to an end, I wished I wouldn't have transferred because the quality of education was just not up to par there. In addition, there were bomb and gun treats against the school the first few weeks I had gone there.
I do enjoy the teachers, students, and activities that I have found at Craig High School. I have been very happy to attend this school for the past 4 years and I believe it has given me a lot of knowledge and skills that I can use in the future. The only thing that concerns me sometimes is the safety of the school because we have had a lot of scares in the past regarding the security of students.
