I LOVE CRIM! I am a student here and it is a very family oriented place to be. Majority of the students are nice and they have so many programs to offer. The teachers treat you like their own children; with much love and respect. Going here has made me grow and given me a sense of responsibility that I didn't have before. They've helped me get a job AND a scholarship! Thanks Crim!

My son attends Crim, and this is his first year. Matter-of-fact, this is his first year in a high school in Atlanta, Ga. We are from Philadelphia. I am very pleased with his progress, and Crim's no-nonsense attitude with the students. Since he has been attending Crim, he nows has a sense of pride about him. He does his homework and his grades are good. My husband goes up to the school once a week to 'show his presence' because as he says, he has an investment that attends Crim. I am pleased with Crim even though I heard so many negative things about the school. I do believe that they have teachers that really do care!

I would not consider sending my high school age children to this school. Only 21% of the students can pay for a $3.00 lunch. The SAT scores are low, the parent involvement is low and the % going to a 4 year college is low. This school has nothing to offer my child.

This school is great. My child's only complant is about the school's lunch and the pep rally's she said that the lunch is not good and you serve the same thing every day. She also said that there needs to be more pep rallys for school spirit.
