At Crestwood there are teachers who doesnt care about grades and lack in teaching. The students are obnoxious and distract other with their learning. Its also crowded and hard to get class because of how full the school is. Bu

I recently graduated from Crestwood High School and I loved it. Everyone acted like one huge family. The drama program is outstanding as are the sports and education. It is possible for students to graduate high school with one whole year of college credit. The principal is outstanding and really wants the best for the students. I've read through a few other reviews and it was stated that the teachers are "horrible and don't care for their students." This is incorrect. Sure there are a few teachers who aren't the best but every school has a few. Most of the teachers will go above and beyond for their students success. On a higher note, the students that attend this school all have bright futures and will do great things in their lives. This is a great school and I highly recommend it.

I attended this school for close to the whole 4 years from 9th grade up until the beginning of my senior year. To be honest with you I did not enjoy coming to school. There would be fights between students at least every other day. Some of the teachers I had were not being supportive with students. There are 2 teachers specifically who would embarass certain students infront of the rest of the class. The classes were crowded..it was hard to learn and to pay attention especially when you cannot get one on one time with the teachers. It really was miserable. Fast forward to the beginning of my senior year I ended up switching schools to an alternative school which was the best decision. I actually enjoyed and looked forward to going to school and the learning experience was one on one there was 2 teachers there to help you. I am a 2010 graduate so I'm not sure how much Crestwood has changed but in my experience and having to change schools senior year tells you something.

I loved going to Crestwood. While there were some teachers that left a lot to be desired, most of them really cared and wanted their students to succeed. There are many activities for students to get involved in, from arts, to sports, to volunteer opportunities.

I used to go to Crestwood and hated it. The teachers don't care, the students are out of control, and the classes are overcrowded. I had to switch schools because I couldn't focus on my work. Between the loud classrooms and constant bullying by other students, it's impossible to focus at Crestwood. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone, and would never send my children there.

Hello I want Crestwood teachers to know the open house was excellent and to know that the teachers do care about their students. This is my childs first year at Crestwood High. The Coaches and Teachers showed great concerns and showed that the student will learn from their teachings. Thanks to all.

Both of my son's go to Crestwood, They are from a Catholic School. Crestwood has a lot to offer in academic's. The teachers find the time to help those that need it. Mr Maloney is a valuable asset in the athlectic dept as well as Assist. Prinipal. It is a wonderful school and has a lot to offer. Mr. Baker is doing a great job and relates well with the kids.

Crestwood Hight School is a superior school and has gotten even better with the new administration both in the high school as well as the Board office. Zero tolerance is the motto, the kids are learning, the staff actually care about the kids, everyone is alot happier . The dress code is enforce more so than other schools and the career focus as increased. I have one in school there and another headed there next September. I know alot of people from several other districts and I know that my son is learning far more than others -including in the privat schools!

I find Crestwood Highschool to be a great school. The teachers are great, parent involvement is good. I have had 2 Senior's at that school, and one that would be next year except that we are moving, I can only hope that the new school is as fine as Crestwood.

Crestwood High School is a good school. You can see the involvement of the staff and students when you enter the building. Teachers,staff and administration are involved in all extracurricular activities. The student population is an excellent size to offer a wide variety of activities for students to choose from, yet small enough that the staff and admin can get to know the students. This school has an ethnically diverse student population and the admin and staff do an excellent job of maintaining a healthy atmosphere so that all students feel safe and comfortable. The teachers take the time to offer extra help when needed. My child has never needed to ask twice when extra help is needed.

This school does not have strict rules. The dress code is horrible. There are girls running around wearing barely anything. What is this showing children? In a workplace you can not dress in a tasteless fashion like Crestwood lets its students get away with.

Crestwood High is one of the best schools in the metro Detroit area. The faculty helps the students in every way possible. My son attended Crestwood and just recently graduated with a 3.4 overall G.P.A. He never did that well until his teachers helped his development. The rules are strict, so fights rarely occur. The school emphasizes safety for all the students. I highly recommend this school.
