School Reviews

  • Recommended December 27, 2014 - 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? - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended March 29, 2014 - 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! - Posted by Parent
