Academic is great, Teacher quality is high, Principal Mr. King puts students needs fiirst, really helped us with meeting our kids needs. We felt the sports program was a challenge, we moved here because of a job transfer and the Athletic Director wanted to know if we were the biological parents and we felt accused of moving here because of the softball team, both softball coaches would not let my dauther try out for pitching, not even giving a kid a chance to try really hurts the self esteem, the Cheer coaches behavior is also pretty hurtful again tears a kids self esteem apart, we had to work extra hard to let both our girls know sometimes they will run into people that are mean and unfair and we just have to hang in their and not let them tear you down, by Crater coaches not give kids a chance you will see a downward trend in the Sports program.

I am a senior this year and I only have a couple days left until I graduate. But the renaissance academy at crater high is the most amazing and spectacular school ever. Because of all the amazing staff I have been helped in maintaining a 4.05 gpa. Amazing school.

The communication from school leaders and principal is dismal. The schedule is a nightmare (ends at a differt time for each school - in some cases each day). No organization.

Crater is an overall good school. Some people complain that teachers dont make time for each student, but compared to my expierience with CA schools, Crater is much better. In CA, there was about a 40 to 1 student teacher ratio. Here it's more like 20 to 1 ratio. Crater has recently split into four schools, each one offering students the ability to learn certain things. Crater' s athletic department is very succesful and on it's way to a great year. Crater is the place to be if you' re looking for a great education.

Crater High has some of the best teachers in my opinion, they really seem to care, and listen when I need to talk to them, But the flat-out truth is that the don't have time for students who need extra help, there is to many students in a 60 minute time frame for 1 teacher to give personal attention to. Crater's drop out rate is disturbingly high, Im currently dropped out this year because the teachers can't give me the attention I need to learn, So im going to take a Online class. Overall, Crater isn't a great school, but it's better then some.

Horrible school. All the facualty care about is the atheltic program (which is lacking) The gym and football areas have been redone three times while other areas of the school have broken ceiling tiles with asbestos. They are consistently wasting money and making poor decisions. not to mention poor test scores and a high drop out rate.

The principal of CHAPS, Mr. Wolfe, is an amazing guy. It's an all-over wonderful school.

I am a student at this school and I love it. We dont get the best test scores I hear, but I feel 100% safe and know that their is always a teacher or student that I can talk to when I need help, or just want to talk. Although Im just a freshmen, this was the best year yet.

I have 2 students at CHS (Sr & Soph). Here are some of the great things about CHS: the clear and forward thinking view of the leadership, the school of business, the drama dept, variety of sports and music, variety of clubs, FFA (agriculture program)friendly students and staff, small schools initiative, clean campus, TIESS, accelerated and AP classes. Here are areas in which CHS can improve: class size, coordination/collaboration of curriculum w/in departments, availability of tech in classrooms, number of counselors (4 for 1600 kids?), lack of A/C in some classrooms, closer relationship w/ the university (SOU) and coaches (sometimes) teaching core subjects without enthusiasm. While CHS did not rate as high on this website as other schools, I believe this has more to do w/ lack of wide parent and community involvement than anything else. Each new family can change this. I recommend CHS.

My husband and I both graduated from crater. We moved to centralpoint school dist. So that our children could go there. Of the surrounding choices we feel it is a great high school. 1 Daughter has graduated and we have a senior this year. Our son attends the middle school.They all have been or are involved in sports. The program is great.
