The academic performance is the highest in Sumter School District. The staffs and faculties are reliable and helpful when are needed. However, the opportunity in learning such as clubs, activities, and AP courses are not provided or sufficiently, which makes it difficult to fulfill a potential of any students who would like to seek a higher education after graduating. Teachers cares the students in some extent. The school environment does not encourage very much students participants in any activities that would improve the students successes.

Crestwood Highschool was a four year life changing experience. It is culturally accepting and embracive. If you are socially active, the experience will be much more fulfilling than the average student. Their academic requirements bring the best out of each student. They encourage students to reach their full potential by promoting events and fundraisers that relates to one’s interests and passion.
It was a good school overall. I didn't have many problems. I think the dress code is absolutely ridiculous and only encourages the objectification of women's bodies. Short bottoms, yes, by all means have a limit, but no shoulders showing? If someone is attracted to my shoulders, that is a whole other issue. We can't dress up for Halloween? The principle's personal beliefs imposed on us was not okay. She could have simply states "do not go over the top with distracting costumes" rather than "Halloween in an unholy tradition that I will not tolerate anyone participating in."
