Cranford High was a very supportive and encouraging school academically and socially. Academically, the teachers always were there to help and supported us in many ways emotionally and academically. Socially, advisors and guidance counselors made us join clubs and clones to gain friends, opportunities and experience in the outside world in many activities.
Cranford High School is one of the most competitive high schools I've ever heard of. It's AP and honors programs are so massive that they are regularly more full than the CP classes. The success of students in this high school is due to the phenomenal teachers, staff, and peers all so willing to help one another. This school has one of the most involved staff of any school with teachers and even administrators staying after hours and getting exceptionally personal with students to ensure college and career readiness. The school might not have as much money as a private school, and its resources might not be of the best caliber, but the dedication of the students, community, and faculty make it one of the most prideful, successful, and caring environments any student could hope for.
