our oldest son has gone to crone for 3 years now. this has been a wonderful experience for him. he has done very well at crone and was in advanced math 2 grades ahead the whole time. he has played football track and a member of the band playing the trumpet. the music program and gifted student programs are amazing. it has always been a safe environment and he was never bullied or got into fights. he is now going to neuqua valley high school and he is very well prepared to be successful there. we have 3 more children going to crone and they are all going in the music and sports program and gifted program. overall excellent middle school and highly recommend.
The English and science of the gifted program are excellent, but the math gifted program for full-strand gifted students is very poor. Many students who were at the full-strand PA program are struggling or stumbled in Math at high school.
I am an eighth grade student at this school, and I am in the gifted program. I think this school has a wonderful gifted program. All of the teachers care about you as a student; they make sure you learn the materials. Language arts and science programs are great - I feel absolutely prepared for high school.
My son is an 8th grader in the accelerated program. We have been very satisfied with the quality of education he is receiving. The team of teachers is superb. The one area I would like to see improvement is foreign language. I would like to see more options offered in a middle school of this caliber.
