This school couldn't have done a better job to prepare me for college. I felt that the time I spent here was both useful, and gave me a great intellectual edge. I know many of my former classmates who are currently in Ivy League Universities, which only confirms the high sense of accomplishment and prestige in this school.
This school provides an above average curriculum with many students moving on to Ivy League Universities. The student population is diverse and there are many academic and sports activities to satisfy all interests. The teachers union is very strong which is good in some ways because it allows for high standards, but can be negative when it comes to salary/benefit negotiations at school board meetings. The teachers come across as entitled and take credit for high test scores when, in fact, there is strong parental and community involvement. I am unfamiliar with special needs offerings but it would be unfair to rate the school poorly based only on this criteria considering it is a very small portion of the student population. Overall, the school district is the best in the immediate area.
Cedar Crest provides a very high quality education, with challenging acedmeics that can be suited to any learning style. The sports and music programs are excellent. It is a fantastic school!
Cedar Crest provided me with the best education I could get. They did a fantastic job of preparing me for college and the academics there. I always felt that the school had excellent leadership, and academic resources. The school has all the amenities a student could ever wish for. I was involved in music and sport clubs and the are simply top notch. Cedar Crest provides the very best that a student needs. Also the facilities and campus is beautiful.
Cedar Crest is wonderful school it holds many oppertunities for students, and the teachers show care for the students and their education
Academics are focused on quantity, as opposed to quality of work. Music programs are excellent. Too much focus on sports. Parent involvement could be better.
Academic programs could be better. Sports is king at this school. Parent involvement is good.
The special education staff is excellent. There are a wide variety of programs to meet the students' needs.
My family and I are very happy about the school's caring and efficient principal and school board. The music and sports programs are excellent and the tests show results above state average every year. 2 thumbs up!
This school does not work well with children who have learning problems.
