I love the academics at Crest High, the teachers are normally amazing and care about us as well! If I could change anything about my school it would be more clubs and organizations to get involved in, mostly to make people come closer as a school and make everyone feel welcome.

Crest High School is a great school! The teachers are helpful and truly want students to learn. They create an atmosphere of learning that is open and challenging, encouraging students to do their best.
This experience has had its ups and downs as does every high school. I would say that my four years at this school has really shaped me into who I am today. I have met life-long friends as well as memories I will never forget. The teachers make us all fell welcomed and happy to be at school. If I had to pick out one thing to change it would be hoe strict the administration is on dress code and the cell phone policy. I personally don't think either of these things are a distraction though I get where they're coming from. Overall, my experience at this high school will be one that I will never forget.
