I am a student at Crestdale, and I agree with the reviews, although apparently they have renewed the Honors program because I am in Honors classes. The football program is ok, and the band is excellent although the teacher is harsh. Most of the teachers are good, but the Administrative staff is below par, with one or two exceptions. Most of the school is "ghetto" like the above said, and some people feel like they are exempt from learning and do not care. There have been drug incidents at Crestdale, and there are many fights. The school is clean, (except for language), and the janitorial staff does a good job. The E.O.G.s are run nicely, and the teachers crack down on the "ghetto" kids so they don't disrupt. The school feeds into two different high schools, so some of the friends you make you will probably never see again. I don't think it is a terrible school, as the idiots mix in with some smart people so the test scores come out nicely, but there is cheating on everyday tests. Regardless of fears or excitement, children will be changed when they come here.

Crestdale has had many good years, however, the recent change of curriculum to exclude an Honors LA to all grade levels by the standing principle is a huge disappointment. Further plans to exclude Honors 6th grade Math in 2012 is an additional negative to school academics and its possible future degradation. Atleast, the school has been able to maintain an excellent core of teachers inspite of not always working at full staff capacity.

This is one of the worst schools you can possibly attend. I am currently a student there trying to find a way out of that hell hole. The education is less than what I learned in elementary schools, the kids all think they are ghetto and don't need to learn, and the teachers only care about a student if they are causing trouble. CMS schools are not perfect, but this school is the worst choice you could make. If you choose this school, I promise you your child will either have F's on their report card, or become suicidal. The only good thing I can say about this school is the football program. Besides that, it is a prison. DO NOT LET YOUR CHILD COME IN CONTACT WITH THIS SCHOOL!!!
