The teacher and student relationships are really good. Most teachers are very gifted in the subjects they teach but also there to help students get ready for college and live after high school. There’s a lot of fun, Spirit and good sports teams and high school for me is overall great!

My only wish for this school is having a bigger passageways. Since it's a small school, it gets crowded so much that it gets to the point where you can't even move. There a lot of shoulder bumps between students happening when going through the crowd.
Most of the teachers are nice. There are always a bad/mean teachers in every school, but it's like 5 out of like 50 teachers.
Some teachers are really picky when grading things but most of them are nice to you, so it kind of balances things out.
A nice small high school with around 150 kids per grade. We have a lot of sports to offer including soccer and volleyball. Every Friday night, the town just gets together to cheer on our football team. If you're lucky, even Cresskill's one and only Maya Davidov will show and sit with you but not always, only when she deems it fit. Our cafeteria is unhealthy but quite good. Say hi to Don while you're there and Kurt who comes in occasionally to buy a pretzel.
