Crane Medical Prep High School Reviews

What I liked about Crane were their Staffs. Many teachers at Crane cared about their student's problems whether it was school related out not. For all 4 years at Crane, my teachers always gave me a helping hand. There was never a time when I didn't have a teacher to rely on. Every teacher at Crane made a flexible schedule so that they can assist the student during and after school hours. Not going to lie many students that attend Crane can be very difficult at times but they would never give. What I would like to change about Crane is the clubs. Crane does not have many clubs like other high schools. So I think by Crane having way more club opportunities crane would be 100 times better!

Attending Crane Medical Prep was a great experience for the most part. Administration can definitely do better, and should have more control in the students. I really enjoyed how many clubs/activities the school had. It definitely should be more of a arts school rather than a medical prep. When I attended Crane there was so many creative/talented students and the art program was pretty well, and it should definitely expand.
As a junior transferee, it is easy for me to adapt to the new environment. The school administration is very supportive: One just needs to tell them his/her concerns, and they will definitely attend to one's needs. The students are very friendly too; they never did once let me feel like an outcast. As for my academics, the school truly lives up to its name. As Chicago's premier health science high school, every student has an extra science subject. And these subjects not only let you be more knowledgeable, but it also gives you the opportunity to earn college credits or be certified.
