I was a student here and I cannot say this school is a good school. The wireless connection is horrible and sometimes it gets disconnected. So whenever students take online test, they sometimes have to redo it. Also, from what I see in classrooms, most of the students use their laptops to play games or do other things during class time. It is hard to concentrate during class time when the atmosphere is not focused on studying but playing around. Also, I am not satisfied with how the teachers deal with their students because they sometimes treat students with aggressive tone (This is what I felt). Plus the teachers aren't proficient at teaching. This school has many things to improve in order to get good reviews from the students and parents.

I am a student at this school and I absolutely cannot stand it. They tell you they have the most up to date technology when in reality, students have trouble connecting to the internet all the time. The teachers and staff only care about getting more students. Only a few teachers are not bitter when it comes to teaching. The teachers need to learn to take their stress out in a healthy way and not out on the students. If you send your kid here, there is an 80% chance they will be miserable here

Our teen is entering her third year at CLHS. It is a wonderful environment for learning and for personal development. The staff and teachers are devoted to the students. I highly recommend Crean any parent.

New High School with small classrooms but very up to date with technology. My son is enjoying being a freshman and using his laptop in class.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
