Okay, though, a lot of kids get kicked from this school. There is no school spirit or nothing that would make the school fun. Some classes its hard to learn because of the immature students. that's why you should make sure your in honors and AP classes.
The way the students type and talk from this school don't make any sense. Its very sad how they say its a great school and the students are amazing. But sadly , those are the students that bully the other kids and are the ones that really don't care. My older sister went to this school and had many friends played varsity basketball senior year 2010, well the things she said about this school wasn't anything pleasant knowing how other kids treat other students., i know every school has the popular kids the drama and the bullies but this school is just a school that needs alot of improvement with their students and ''Teachers''. I know theirs students in that school that are willing too suceed and leave that school and some that just dont care. And the reason for this school being so hated is because the students that go their all they say about it is bad things and the experiences they had from there . Im sorry for saying this but i wouldn't never want to go their it made my life miserble. And yes im a student there and the truth hurts ... i hate that school everytime i wake up everymorning makes me sick knowing that im going to a school that i hate .
The school pulls only 11% of its students from Coconut Creek. The other children are bused in from poor areas, which explains why the school has almost all minorities. Most Coconut Creek kids are zoned for Monarch (which is why it is a good rated school and Coconut Creek is a "D" school). Change the boundary and improve the school. a real no brainer!! Otherwise change the school name it North Lauderdale High or Margate High to correctly represent the kids who are there! I live in the zone and like my neighboors would never send my kids there!
I am currently attending CCHS its an "alright school" some teachers care but most are there for the pay check, or some are just not there at all (I've has a sub majority of the year for algebra 2). School needs to be improved in cleanliness, smells of weed, fights were constant but have improved. New principal has made good changes but nowhere near complete. Students walk off campus (through the front door) skipping during class is a natural occurrence. So to the students actually trying to succeed i would suggest looking elsewhere im trying to go to a charter school next year.
As much as people say bad thing about Coconut Creek, it ain't that bad. We have new principal and he did a wonderful job of the place, he actually care and brought us new book and provide us many afterschool class + activity. "Most" of people I know going there are extremely nice and hard worker, I didn't say everyone but most. For me, I feel like it home. Teacher care about you and most of them try their best working with the student and help them as much as possible too.
my son attends coconut creek high. coconut creek is a very very bad school. i didnt believe it untell i witnessed it myself. going to pick my son up i witnesed students out of class walking off campus, rude students no one would show me where the office was, i was harrased, the halls reeked of weed smell, and i witnesed a beating and no security to break it up. coconut creek should be shut down for good. im not sending my son there next year. very dissapointed
Ugh honestly this school needs to be worked on. I'm still a student here and the teachers need an attitude check. The security is so loose, they don't care what anyone does. Last year we were an F school. Honestly, Creek needs to be worked on. The students need to start caring about their grades and their future. And the teachers need to be postive role models. Most of them just tell you straight up that they don't care, they're just here for the pay check.
I was a Student at this school and i have to say it is not that bad! the majority of the kids have a great time, & the teachers are great. They help you when you need except for a hand full who believe that you area student and you have a book so do it your self. other than that it is a great school. As for students getting kicked out of their schools and going to creek, they accept students so that they can get an education. Alot of people may not like the school, but as a hands on student i loved it till i moved and i wish that you all would stop complaining about it ....
Honestly, this school needs some improvements. I don't understand why all the kids who were kicked out of their schools are attending Creek when we are not in their district.
I know that this may be somewhat unorthodox; however, my last correspondence was limited due to provided space. I would be doing a disservice to the students, staff, and community stakeholders of Coconut Creek if I did not share a few more of the many accolades and initiatives at Creek. In addition to the aforementioned accomplishments in my last correspondence, it is important to note that we have established a ring ceremony, a top 10% dinner, re-established a fully functioning PTSA, were selected as one of five(5) national recipients of the Rise Magazine $10,000 grants (three in Florida and two in New York), and one of our students will be attending Stanford University on a full academic scholarship. Lastly, the 75% of our lowest 25% in math making learning gains on the FCAT is comparable to and in most cases surpass other district schools that received an 'A' or a 'B'
People think of Creek and automatically think that its a low standard school. So many things are happening around our community every day that we're not even noticed for the good we do. We have been labeled with a letter grade that has defined the kind of students we are in general but that's not true. Now especially, I'm proud to say that I'm a Cougar and content with it.
there are many students and teachers who don't really care about anything let alone the school. Creek has it's problems but there is a large number of students there who are trying to make a difference. its very hard to do that when even the administration is against you and has a one track mind
my daughter attended creek this past year, she was in ninth grade. She was in foundations her counselor was great and have the best AP world geography teacher. She enjoyed going to creek and made a lot of friends.
I pulled my daughter from school May of '07. Kids wander on and off campus at will. My daughter's 'guidance counselor' had never met her until second semester of her junior year. Some teachers are good, others uninvolved. Little discipline, poor response to parents needs. Students have to take an education from here. Dress codes are ignored, absences and skipping classes get an obligatory computer call unless you hold someone's feet to the fire. Large classes, limited art. There are some good teachers trying to make the most of a bad situation.
This is a horrible school. They changed the boundaries to which almost 90% of the students get bussed in from other areas all over Broward County. Our local children won't go to this school because of the people who are there. It's ashame what this school has turned into.
I love creek high.....Its a graet skool for any child to go to i would really recommend any sort of kind of child go here
My child attended this school. He thoguht it was bad... He got bullied, and he scored very low on the state exams.
I believe at this school or any school you as a student have to work hard for what you want to accomplish out of life. I have found no problems here at this school and the kids seem to be like any other school, hardworking and doing what they need to do. I can say that I didn't want my child to go here at first but he is doing very well. Teachers are great.
this is a great school. although it isnt the cleaniest school or it has been taken lockers away from the childen. Its fine beacuase it teaches student a lesson for the real world having a locker is a short cut i played with the school basketball team, the coaches are great at the same time i continued to sing and maintained a 3.5 GPA Coconut Creek high is a great school despite the grade it has been given I am proud to say that i am a Cougar. I just wish there were improvements to the school such as the gym floor
I think this school is a great school even though it has a 'D' rating. kids should go to this school because it teaches you good values, and it has academic excellence. the students in my childs school are disiplined and very hardworking they are nice and lend a helping hand.
