I think Credo did as good as a job as it could given the circumstances to prepare me for college but I do believe that I could be more prepared. I did make a lot of friends which is honestly why I stayed plus the fact that credits are very hard to transfer, but it definitely wasn't easy. Some of the teachers I had were amazing but others were pretty bad. The spanish department, especially this year has been very poor and credo seems to be losing some of its best teachers. Despite all of these issues I did end up getting into a good college so I am not saying not to go to Credo. I just think it is important to think about what experience you want in a high school and if you are okay being forced to take lots of art classes and just some random classes you are not interested in. Just make sure you know what you are getting yourself into.

I am a freshman at Credo High School. I skipped from eighth grade into Credo . At first, I was extremely impressed with the academics and teachers. However, as I was at the school for longer, I began to see more. While the staff and teachers are amazing, the main problems have to do with the classes themselves. many of the classes are fun and useful, however there are some "problem classes." One of these such classes is eurythmy. For those of you who don't know what eurythmy is, it is a movement class where students have to use their bodies to express music and word. this class is not only ridiculous, but it is also required for one trimester of the year. this class is also graded, and affects student's GPA. I took it in the first trimester and got an A-. The reason? "Not moving my arms enough." Credo is a pretty average school, with awesome teachers and not so awesome classes.
Credo is a brand new school that is still figuring out what it is in relation to other schools in the area as well as other schools under the Waldorf umbrella. The teachers as individuals are great, however, poor funding, lack of structure, as well as required art courses hold it back from being a great option for someone looking for the small school experience.
