Cranberry Area School District Reviews

Cranberry Area School District is an average school. Considering it being located in a small area, it comes to no surprise that it lacks certain extra curricular classes that would be helpful to some students who want a career in the more creative field. The school has a very good athletic program, although lacking a football team, it pays great attention to the cross country and wrestling teams. From my experience of being at this school I can confirm that the money that's given to the school isn't always spent the wisest. The ceiling has been damaged (leaking, falling down, ect.) and did not get fixed for almost a year. Overall, this is a decent school for the area it's in, great teachers, faculty, and students for the most part. It could improve on its' extra curriculars, but it's understandable to as why they don't have them.

I enjoyed the cross country program a lot. They were such great coaches! The academics weren’t too bad either. Cranberry really helped me strive to my potential!
I loved the small classroom sizes and how I felt like I wasn't just a number at the school. However, some staff members did seemed inept at teaching. Complaints would be made about said staff members, but nothing was done because many staff members have tenure. Also, the lack of funding was always an obstacle, but nothing can be done to change the money issue.
