Cross Creek Early College High School Reviews

Cross Creek Early College is an exceptional school for those that aspire to be professionals in the future. Cross Creek has prepared me for the world of college classes and college society. I encourage students that plan on earning at least a Bachelor's Degree to attend Cross Creek Early College. However, athletics are not provided at the early college because of the emphasis on academics. Early college athletes who wish to pursue their appropriate sports must leave school early and miss instruction.

I love the overall experience at Cross Creek Early College High School. Everyone is like family; we help one another stretch beyond boundaries to explore and view academics in different perspectives to enhance learning.
The overall faculty and student morale is good and cultivates an environment for wanting to be involved in something greater-better for the school and the community. I would not change anything about Cross Creek Early College- it is absoultely perfect!
This school is an amazing opportunity that allows you to take high school and college classes at the same time. It requires you to be involved in different clubs and have a 25 volunteer hours each semester. So, when you graduate, you will have a total 200 volunteer hours and have a head start on college credits. Overall, this school makes you a well-rounded student (academically and socially) and prepares you for college.
One thing that I want to be improved is the technology, such as, laptops, smart boards, etc. The technology we have now is slow and often needs to be repaired. I also want more school events and competitions. In my freshman and junior year, we had many events that involved the whole school. Sadly, that has changed and we have little to no events. I also want better foods at the cafeteria. The food here is sanitary but does not taste good.
