It`s very filthy, and almost nothing is done about bullying. Many of the events the school pushes out are either last minute, or horribly executed. They sometimes brag about their statistics while ignoring their issues, and the administration is not very open to opinion. In sixth grade I wrote them two full size essays that year about their policies, and they didn`t even bother to read it.It`s obviously better than big city schools, but it`s definitely one of the worst in the Del Norte community. Can`t wait for high school.

Hi. I''m an 8th grade girl at Crescent Elk. And honestly..this school is just fine. I love most of the teachers, we have fun school events on occasion, and the school is (unless your an idiot and decide to pick fights with people) very safe. That does not mean i''d necessarily recommend it, though. The thing that can make this school hell for some people is the amount of horrible students here. People who do nothing but be obnoxious, talk back to teachers, and bully people. I''m sure most middle schools are like that, (since its, y''know, MIDDLE SCHOOL) but we sort of have an epidemic. (what I do appreciate is that the principal has recently been making an effort to get these people out of our school, which I do appreciate, but it doesn''t mean it isn''t still a problem) That''s not to say there aren''t a ton of great students as well, but if you send your kids here, they''re probably gonna get bullied. It''s an nice school otherwise. Send your kids here if they have a thick skin.
