The staff at Crookston High School is what made my experience the best. I felt I got the attention there that was needed, I got extra time with teachers during passing time, before school, or after school when I didn't understand something completely. It was a safe environment to be in every morning surrounded by good influences. Every year attending school my favorite time of the year is homecoming because of all the fun activities we do with other students or even against staff. The food at the school in my opinion is very good, I'm more of a healthy eater and everyday there is salad bar provided as well as some type of fruit. The school the teachers to try their very best to be a little more strict on older kids to get us ready for college. With test after test, or making tests limited which really makes us push to get ready for college because we won't have extra time in college. I have one semester left and have really enjoyed my experience.

I like how many extra-curricular activity choices that were available. But, some teachers aren't the best at ensuring and education and lots of students try to cause trouble more than they learn.
I had a good experience at Crookston High School overall. I think that there is good support for students who are looking towards the future and want to put the work in to be able to succeed. I think there are some leadership problems in the main office and throughout the teaching staff. This is the one thing I would like to see change. I believe this change would start with better leadership from the top of the chain and hopefully that would work its way down. We have some really good teachers, but they are few in numbers. There is a need for individuals who care for the student's best interest and those who want to push the individuals succeed at the highest level possible.
