I take pride in being a charger. From stands full of cheering students at football games to out of the box spirit day themes, I feel like I’ve gained one of the best high school experiences. However, with that experience came a rigorous curriculum. Taking classes like AP US History and AP Environmental Science at the start of high school strengthened my study habits, preparing me for college and helping me pass my AP exams. Through programs our teachers have supplied such as, FlinnPrep and AP Classroom checkpoints, I feel that Crestwood teachers truly have their student’s bed interests at heart.

Crestwood’s staff is unbeatable. I’ve had teachers offer endless resources to ensure I’ve understood the material. The passion I’ve witnessed come from most teachers has encouraged me to do my best. I’ve learned techniques such as diligent note-taking and helpful test strategies that I’ve been using for years. That being said, I owe my future success to my teachers.

Crestwood School District is such a great environment. I came to Crestwood's School District back in 6th grade and little did I know, I was in for a great ride. One of the things I love about this district would be how diverse it is. You have many people from different backgrounds, religions and overall space. Having a diverse space like this is nice. If I could see a change in this district, I honestly wouldn't change anything to harsh. Little things such as the food and certain spaces in the school could use some help, but overall this district is great!
My experience there had its ups and downs as most high school students go through, but the education there taught me a lot and we had a lot of advanced placement, or AP, classes as for those who where more advanced than some of the other students and could challenge ourselves. I really enjoyed my time there, but one thing I would change is the bathrooms and the size of the school or student population. Especially in Crestwood High School the amount of students there was crazy and during passing time it is horrible trying to get to your classes with how many students there was. I would be pushed or shoved or tossed around in the intersections of other hallways. The bathrooms weren't always the cleanest at Crestwood, but sometimes we wouldn't have soap in the bathroom or toilet paper for a while sometimes and no one really wanted to use them due to this. This is why I would chose the size of the school or student population and bathrooms should be the things to change.
