The teachers and administration really do care about your well-being. Sometimes that manifests itself as tough love but you always come out a better person after. They also want to help you in any way they can. Personally, my advisor has worked with me to get me in the classes I want and encouraged me to take risks with classes I hadn't thought about before. The college counseling is top-notch. The campus itself is extremely nice, but the girls' bathrooms leave something to be desired. The student body is incredibly diverse; I have close friends of all colors, from places like Russia, Vietnam, China, Korea, etc. The diversity of perspective is the diversity of the campus ten-fold. The people I have encountered here are some of the nicest, most thoughtful people I have ever met. They are outgoing, accepting, everything you could want from classmates. Overall, my experience here has been amazing, and I highly recommend this school to others.

I like the curriculum, but the homework policies and practices need to be relaxed a bit. It is overwhelming and unreasonable to have 6 hrs of homework each night if they expect students to have balanced lives that include extracurricular, and social activities.....both of which are important to being well rounded individuals and responsible citizens in the school community and the communities in which we all live. The campus is absolutely beautiful. The art museum and science center are incredible resources that enrich the culture of the school and offer inspiration to the students. They offer a wide range of clubs, and sports for students to get involved with. They support and actively pursue diversity and inclusion.
I am a high school sophomore and my 12 years at Cranbrook has been nothing but wonderful. The teachers are incredibly nurturing and you can unquestionably tell that they only want the best for you. The classes at Cranbrook teach you to be autonomous and self-reliant due the amount of work done at home. The sports program is as well phenomenal- there are so many different activities available from soccer- to archery and everything in between. Cranbrook has just about anything- the arts curriculum is without a question sensational. Arts include: weaving (Cranbrook's weaving studio is the biggest hand-weaving studio in North America), sculpture, ceramics, metal smithing, and much more. The 40 acres that Cranbrook occupies is stunning and puts one at peace. Being also a boarding soon, offers education to students all over the world. You see people from China, Japan, Korea, etc all over campus and in a lot of classes. I would doubtlessly recommend Cranbrook for everyone.
