Crete Public Schools Reviews

The only thing I didn't like was the amount of things one could do as an adolescent in a small town. Other than that, Crete high was a great high school. The classroom sizes ranged from 9-25 students per class. Teachers would enjoy the one on one time with their students. Relationships between us would be strictly professional, but they'd be very caring. I loved that we could choose from a variety of electives as well as after school sports and clubs. To this day, they continue to add new clubs. These clubs are made by teachers, or even students like us. Another thing I loved was that our success and accomplishments would be celebrated by the city. Ex. when we’d make it to state, the police and firefighters would give rides around towns while we’d yell and holler, and just celebrate our success.

Overall Crete Public Schools was a great schooling system. I attended K-12. One thing I noticed when i was there is that there could be more help when preparing students for college readiness. Also helping them to become more involved with preparing for college such as filling out scholarship applications and giving them places to look outside of just the list that they provided. As in after I graduate, where do I look to continue to seek help with tuition even after the first semester or two of college.
Personally it feels as if the school seems to focus on students that they see may become some large name. This includes students that excel in sports or extracurricular activities. The students who may be deemed as average seem to be forgotten or lose interest in school. There are teachers though that do try to include everyone in the conversation but are lower in numbers than the teachers who would much rather talk to a few students about their college choices. After school there are some new activities that are helping get students more into school and that is a good change made by some teachers. The administration themselves seem to have little regard for the students own opinions though.
