I love this school and I miss it dearly.

As a former CCJSHS student that is now attending the University of Florida, it proves that CCJSHS is a lot better than what these people are making it out to be. There are many teachers who genuinely care about the students and even though the budget is too low for any kind of extra curricular activities, it is not impossible for a student to succeed.

I'm currently a senior at Crescent City High school and to be quite honest with the way my education was given to me I'm scared to death of college. I've managed to keep my grades up but that was my own doing. My teachers (other than a few exceptions) teach me NOTHING!! There's no extra activities and we are hardly ever encouraged to succeed.

In my opinion Crescent City Jr/Sr High School is a decent school. It's a school that doesnt have much to offer but it has great teachers. The setting of the school though is terrible.With the strict dress code policy and the rediculous reasons for referals CCJSHS is over all a fair and run of the muck school.

I am currently attending CCJSHS,and it ia a great school. It has many extracurricular activities, and a great football team. The involvement of the teachers is greater than that of all the other schools I have attended combined. In a nutshell, CCJSHS is a great school.

I do not think its a very good school at all.

Posted February 13, 2006

I went to CCJSHS from 9-10th grade. While I was there I found that the teachers pushed me hard. Even though people say it's not a very good school it's whats on the inside that counts. My teachers gave me attention when I needed it and that is what helped me in the long run. The principal is off the chain! -kayla bennett

This school does not provide an environment conducive to learning and does not offer rigorous courses to prepare students. In addition, they do not offer any extracurricular activities or educational enhancement opportunities

I went to Crescent City High School a few years ago. All of my teachers there were great. They always gave one on one attention if you needed it and because of that, my GPA shot up and was able to graduate with honors. It's a small school considering it ranges from seventh to the twelfth grade, but I think that it's a good idea to have the seventh graders there from the beginning to see what high school is like early on. The princapals knew just about everyone that attended the school and were even there if you need to talk about a problem.

i was a student of crescent city junior senior high school. then i moved to north carolina but i still think that the home of the Raiders better known as crescent city will always be the best for me or any other student that has ever attended there.

About the tests

The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
