School Reviews

I am not sure howI feel about this school yet but am in interested in speaking to other parents. To the above poster.. Does your child still attend Croatan?

If you aren't from around here you are called "off" and ostracized by the student body and teachers. They bully you into conforming - STEPFORD WIVES! The dress code is CONFUSING! If you are liked you can wear whatever you want. If you are "off" or not liked by the administration/faculty, you are harassed. Academics are tough but my child who was a B student before is now all As and not because the school made her better but because she finds the classes much easier!
