Crest High School Reviews

Crest High School provides what many would call a "classic high school experience." If there was one thing that really defined Crest, it would most likely be football. If the football team happens to be good that year everyone, and I mean everyone, goes to at least one game during the year. None of the other sports, clubs, or activities seem to get as much attention as football does. I wish there were more academic clubs to get involved with like a math club or debate team. The Science Olympiad team has improved recently, actually placing well in the Regional tournament. If you play an instrument, both the Band and Orchestra directors are very passionate about teaching. They can be a little harsh at times, but it shows they really care about the group doing well. All in all Crest is a pretty average high school and I had a wonderful experience going there for four years.

I am proud to be a future graduate of Crest High School. I feel that my school offers opportunities for academic excellence. However, I think that my school should improve in preparing students in college readiness. Crest High School is a great institution in that it provides students with amenities to explore and blossom into their own individual. There are multiple clubs and sport activities that are available to students. Overall, Crest High School is an excellent school who promotes scholastic greatness, personal respect and responsibility, and educational preparedness.
I really liked the social setting during lunch and all the teachers! All the teachers made sure to make a personal connection to students to help them learn on their level and helped us understand more.
