I fully understand how ridiculous it is for someone--me, in this case----who got out of school decades ago to hope that the school he fondly remembers nas bot withered away, as so many of these posters claim. I'm absolutely certain they have a clearer picture of things than I ever will. I can only saay this : have hope,kids. Clean house if you need to. CCHS has churned out sparklingstudents--engineers, machinists, doctors, pharmacists,thinkers. You can suceed, too. Steve Jennings

I went to CCHS for all four years of my high school. At the end of it all, I walked out with many good friends, but I had learned nothing. The teachers neglect to teach. In Algebra I, I probably had less than 10 assignments for the whole year. The teachers who actually try to teach their students are seriously taken for granted. CCHS is a good 'school' to go to if you want to slide through high school easily, spend class time visiting other teacher's rooms, and eating. All anyone cares about at this horrible excuse for a school is sports. If you plan on going to college, be prepared for a rough surprise. If not for my friends I would have left this school and transferred to somewhere where i could actually learn something once in a while.

Being a small school allows our community to truly feel like we are the village---all pitching in to help raise our children. Our kids get lots of one-on-one attention and most everyone can participate in extra-curricular activities.

I would have to disagree with almost every other poster who has written a review on this school. Having been a former student i know that the teachers and administration are more concerned with talking with each other during classtime, rather than focusing on the students and helping them learn. Review any of the schools academic proficiencies and you will soon realize that they are all below state average and on the decline with each passing year. Please consider a different school if you wish for your child to get a better education.

Crystal City High School is definetly not the best choice for a student seeking challenging coursework, Athletics are given much more emphasis than necessary, the disrict spend half a million dollars on turf for the football stadium, and yet the students use books that are falling apart and have teachers that spend the entire class period chatting with thier colleagues. I would strongly reccommend putting your child in a neighboring school.

Crystal City is stereotyped as the underdogs, the losers, which angers me. I couldn't disagree more. CCHS is a terrific school. A prevoius poster said that the principal really cares for her students. This is true. The faculty is the most caring, thoughtful and fun staff I have ever came across. CCHS is a family-like environment. The teachers are all wonderful and some are just fantastic. Oppurtunities do exist for all students -- it is impossible not to be involved in at least one club, sport, or activity, in fact, a majority of the students are involved in more than one. Or two. At CCHS, you have athletes in the drama production, in the marching band, and in the National Honor Society. The football, volleyball, boys basketball, drama, and FBLA programs are fantastic. Students are prepared for college and looked after by the staff as well as their former students. CCHS!

CCHS is a great school. Students have more oppurtunities to take classes they want to take and participate in all kinds of extra-curriculars. CCHS provides oppurtunities for everyone and are well prepared for college. The principal really cares about the students. Go Hornets!!

CCHS provides wonderful opportunities for all students that attend. What the school lacks in large school resources, it makes up for in small school opportunities for all students, either in academia, athletics, band, chorus, arts ot other extracurricular activites. Participation is encouraged, and college preparation is beyond adequate. As a CCHS alumni, I can say that I was more prepared than many of my classmates in college, both at the undergraduate and graduate level. CCHS does not ensure success in college for every graduate, but provides wonderful preparation and opportunities for all students.

This school is excellent. It is underated, and deserves much more credit. Block scheduling is the greatest thing to be created. Everyone is family. It's a small town and a small school, and I can't think of one teacher I dislike. It's a small campus and has the coolest teachers around. New students aren't made to feel alienated here. The parent involvement is good. alot of kids from R-7 go to CCHS b/c it is small and the people arent snobby like at Festus. THE best school ever!

CCHS was a great school. The teachers were challenging yet helpful. The sports programs were for everyone, not just the popular kids. And the class sizes were small enough for one on one if you needed it.
