Cranbrook is the best school in the world! After having a terrible time in elementary and middle school in the public school system, I switched to Cranbrook and it was the best thing that ever happened to me. Cranbrook helped me to become a strong and confident student. I am now at a top 50 school worldwide and am succeeding at a level that would have never been possible without the amazing faculty and staff at Cranbrook!
Review Cranbrook Schools
I'm proud to AIM HIGH. This is the best high school with greatest teachers and friendly staffs. Hundreds of awards and high SAT and ACT scores prove that the school excels in all aspects. You will be overwhelmed by the Cranbrook's huge campus too. The Campus is as big as a small city somewhere in Southeast Asia. Finally, the best thing you can see at Cranbrook is the strong bond between students. There are Indians, African American, Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai, Korean, Mexican, American, ... If you are from a different country, the American people, including African Americans and Indians, will be super hospitable to you.
Attending Cranbrook was like living a fairy tale. Being able to roam the gardens during free time or utilize the resources of the art or science museums on campus during a class was reason enough to attend. The diversity that the boarding students brought to the school to widened my worldview, the teachers were passionate, engaged and creative, and I think that my AP classes prepared me well for the AP tests that I took, and I was able to score highly and earn college credit, even at an Ivy League School. I'm so grateful for my experience at Cranbrook, and return often to visit the Art Museum, see my old teachers, or go for a run through the forest or around Kingswood Lake. While attending school, and still today, my life is enriched by the quantity and quality of statues, hand-woven textiles, and architecture that composes the background of daily educational experience. I would not trade my education at Cranbrook for the world.
