A school is as good as the parents that are involved. My child graduated from Crowley High in the top 5% of his class, took many challenging classes, and received several scholarships. The curriculum includes many AP and IB classes. If you want your child to succeed, be an involved parent. This school has many very good teachers and staff, and they respond well to kids who want to succeed with involved parents. At the other end of the spectrum, they have staff that are very dedicated to providing the necessary support to students who have special needs and need more attention and encouragement to succeed.

I wouldn't send my kids here if I had a choice. And if I knew my kids would eventually have to go to this school, I wouldn't live in this district. Too many wild kids who require discipline from teachers in classes, good smart kids suffer lack of adequate education. Parents don't seem to care what your kids are doing as long as they're out of their hair. But if your kids are in athletics, they might not even get in trouble and even if they get caught, they;ll most likely get away with it. Send your kids somewhere else. I'd rate this school as 0 star, but no option for me to do that, so I give 1 star.

I do not recommend this school! The counselors could care less and do not return phone calls. When you just show up they act like you are wrong for it. It seems that it is about the money and not about the students education. They wear uniforms yet the students can sag their pants & not tuck in their shirts. WHAT IS THE POINT IN THE PARENTS SPENDING HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS ON UNIFORMS IF YOU DO NOT ENFORCE IT? No way would I keep my child in this school!

My husband, sister in law, 2 sisters and all 3 of my children have graduated from Crowley High School. All graduated with honors and scholarships. My personal experience was with the Band and Tennis team as all 3 of my children were in both activities. I would rate the overall school a 4 (Above Average) and I would rate the Band, Band instructors, Tennis and the Tennis coach Above Average (4-5) as the coaches and the instructors are highly committed to these activities and assist the children in excelling. They are very friendly, compassionate, and approachable, whether you are a student or a parent. The majority of the teachers are also the same; very friendly, compassionate, and approachable. I have dealt with the school as a whole for years now and I honestly wouldnt send my children anywhere else. The Crowley Community welcomes all school activities and the school is very community oriented.

The last several years have been particularly stressful on every teacher at Crowley. The school is on its third principal in three years and there have been layoffs for two consecutive years. Despite the uncertain environment they work in, the teachers at Crowley consistently display how much they love and care for the children enrolled there. They are willing to meet students for extra tutoring before school starts and after it ends. They grade papers late in the evening and on weekends. They attend the sporting events, plays, concerts and academic competitions of their students after hours and on weekends. They attend professional development courses during summer vacation. They cry when their students hug them goodbye at the end of every year.

I do not recommend this school. The counselors do not seem to care about the students or even returning calls to the parents. I have had contact with one teacher and have no idea who any of my daughters teachers are and they don't seem to care about staying in contact with the parents. The students are not taught basic things like respect and manners. The students run this school, not the adults.

The Teacher seem to be there to get a paycheck but that attitude may be fostered by the fact that the administration form the Board on down has no idea what they are doing. Never have I seen an organization so out of touch and bogged down. The decision making process for the administration is not based on logic but money and very little practicality.

Two of my children went to this school and they both loved it and I have one daughter in the school at the moment in 10th grade. Both of my older children were accepted into TCU. They are still friends with the people who met there, which I am very happy about. The only problem I had with the school was that the book, there weren't always enough for each student. My daughter was involved with many after school activitys .Overall I was very pleased with there experence there.

I think that the school needs improvement. I've been a student here for the past three years and am still waiting for it to get better. Granted the dresscode was a good idea, they still need to be pickier with who they choose as teachers, and the teachers need better qualifications to be able to actually teach their subject.

I graduated from Crowley High School a few years ago and I have siblings still at Crowley High School. My experience there was excellent, and I was definitley prepared for college. I received a first-rate education and wouldn't have changed anything. The teachers and administration at CHS provide a broad range of academic learning experiences and extracurricular involvement. Academically speaking, CHS is as good as anywhere. An education at CHS is a 'real-life' experience--if you try and give it your best, you will do well. If you choose not to work, you will fail. I'm proud to be a graduate of CHS.

Really people, lets be honest about crowley high school. This school is not just for minorities, but for all races. But heres the problem, when will crowley school district or community really embrace the minorities within the school. Yes, there is more gang related violence than we know of, yes! there is seperation within the school due to different ethnics groups and yet, they say more parent paticipation is needed. I have vulenterred to assist within the HS, but i was told they don't accept any. Wow! What i need from crowley is more ethnic teachers, coaches and security within the school. We need adult help to monitor and teachers to help in direction, guidence and leadership. Until they get diverseified, its gonna be a work in profress.

There are indeed some problems at Crowley High, but from what I have experienced, the problems arise from the students. While we do have many great kids at this school, they get overlooked because of the disruptive kids. I know Richard Crosby would like to be more involved with the lives of the kids, but he hasn't the time when he has to spend every waking moment diverting possible fights, student apathy for the dress code, and disrespect toward teachers and staff. I worry about the future of this school unless parents get more involved and play a strong part in urging their kids to obey rules and use manners toward adults. Cursing and use of the 'n' word are common ~ not across ethnic groups, but within the group! It's apalling. Great schools are predominately made by students and parents. I hope things change.

Crowley High School is a great place to go. That is, of course, if you are a minority. Teachers and administrators favor certain ethnic backgrounds over others. The teaching is sub-par, and gang activity is a daily happening. But don't worry, the school board has found a great solution to all of Crowley's problems: Standardized dress!

Crowley high school isn't as good as it seems. All the classes are to overcrowed, with not enought desks, and textbooks. The administrators are ok, but what gets me is how some of the teachers treat the students. Some of them dont seem to care at all, and dont do their best to help a student struggling. Athletics are good at the school, Extracuricular activities (stuco.) are not. There seems to be little to none parent involvment at the school.

My daughter is in her senior year at CHS and we both have been very pleased with the school, the teachers, the curriculum and the administration. The staff is genuinely interested in helping students succeed and there is a lot of encouragement for students to join clubs and other activities. The band directors are absolutely wonderful and they are all very involved with the students, and the same goes for the Ag teachers. The school rules are not excessive and they are very clear and evenly enforced. There aren't many problems at the school. There is a fair amount of ethnic and other diversity (religious, gay/lesbian) but again no big problems have come up. The new principal (Richard Crosby) gets high marks from parents, teachers and students.

Both the high school and the ninth grade are pretty good schools, they have great programs, and great teachers that care, but both of the schools are very crowded. But it has been a positive experience for us.

CHS is not as crowded as other area schools. The student to teacher ratio is manageable, but more importantly the teachers seem to care about the progress the students make. The 9th grade campus especially rides the students, and will not let them fail. Discipline is strick by area standards. Most of the students are involved in extra-curricular activities if they want. CHS offers all the sports, has a great band, good theatre arts program, top notch debate team and many clubs that offer other students the opportunity to get involved. A PTO is supportive of the school as is a booster club for sports. Is it the best school around? Maybe not by private school standards, but pretty good by public standards.
