Crestview High School1

My daughter tried out and made softball. It's apparent that about 4 girls only made the team in order to gain $520 per child to be on the team. My straight A student is having trouble keeping her grades up. I'm seriously considering homeschooling.
Fights, fights, fights daily, it is a great school however some of the kids here need to be sent off. It's quite unbearable here for me honestly because of just this. Most teachers here are great, they communicate with the students a lot with the exception of the few who just get up and teach until the day is finally over. Great school, so-so community (students). Also the U.S. really needs to change the buses here.
My daughter went to Crestview High school and i can say its a great school. They have the CHOICE program and this year they just added cosmetology, they several other options too. There athletics are great. Academics are Amazing, all the teachers care and if they have a failing grade they will notify you if you let them know that you want them too. The principal is great too. The ESE program is wonderful. It does have crowded hallways but my Daughter could get from on end of the school to the other and be to class on time! Discipline is very high too.
I am a Freshman at Crestview High School and entering this school from the local middle school was a shock! The students at CHS are out of control and fights happen all the time, right in the middle of the halls! The school is unsanitary and old and many of the bathrooms are so repulsive I do not even want to use them. The school is definitely overcrowded and class sizes are very large. On a positive note, most of the teachers and staff are very helpful and informative, but some are clearly only at the school for their paycheck. The principal is helpful, the staff in the office try to help, but they often do not know the answers to your questions. Overall, Crestview is a great school from an academic standpoint, but something needs to be done about the fights, vandalized desks and lockers, corrupt students, and sanitation.
It's is the worse school that my son attended. He received very little help from his teachers and the guidance councilor is rude and got annoyed when ask for advice or help. This school may be good for children that are advanced but not for any student that needs extra attention or below average! Don't be fooled by the "A+" school.... It's not, only on paper!!! I felt as though the school is more concern about the fcat scores than what the children are really processing and learning,
Crestview High School is an outstanding school. Crestview High School offers students a wide range of opportunities, while providing them a small school 'family' feel. The teachers, administrators and staff at Crestview High are dedicated to helping their students become the productive members of an informed society. As does every school in Okaloosa county, Crestview High provides parents the opportunity to remain active in their child's academic life. Every teacher is open to parent calls, emails, and conferences. They provide the education to students that parents should seek, while giving assistance to any parent who wants to remain an active member of his child's education.
