I went to cranberry my enitre school career. The teachers were amazing, so incredible helpful and nice. The classes are very challenging and help you in college. There was a little problem with students, but teenagers will be teenageers, just ignore the ignorant ones. Most other students are very nice and you can become really good friends with them. The athletics are amazing and highly encouraged. The music and art departments are way above average. Overall I would not pick any other school to attend. This is a very good school to go to.

I attended Cranberry until 11th grade. I dropped out because I was tormented for being openly gay. Certain faculty members were kind and I felt safe when they were around. However, day to day name calling (by students) and facetious comments (by office staff) led me to drop out, achieve my own goals and I'm proud to say I'm a sophomore in college studying law to hopefully one day be an advocate for victims of school bullying. If you're looking for a jaded, narrow-minded environment to show off/live vicariously through your straight, athletic, white child; Cranberry Jr.Sr. High School would be great for you. Otherwise home schooling would be the best option for those that fall short of the above listed criteria.

Teachers are great, student body is unfriendly. Environment can be hostile between students, cliques are a real problem.
