    "Really 3.5...great basics, but need to focus on sustaining it throughout HS from MS.The curriculum of the MS is very good and overall they do a very good job of challenging students especially in Math. Unfortunately, I don't think the same caliber carries over into the HS. Also, if you do not place into the advanced level classes in MS it is hard to move up the chain even if you want to. As a small school, they do very well - but the school does suffer the disadvantages of a small school as well. There is a lack of resources allocated towards guidance staff and clubs. If your child is very bright - he/she will excel but not get the fulfilling education one would get at a bigger school. Teachers overreact to student behavior sometimes - hassling them for tedious things. Some teachers need to be reminded that to be respected and trusted one also has to earn it and show the students the same courtesy. Ending on a good note, Cresskill is a tight-knit community, which makes the school community very small and intimate. Outstanding MS curriculum - a focus on improving HS in terms of class selection and support system for college would make the HS as equally outstanding."

    "unfortunetly, scores don't tell the whole story.Teachers are burnt out, many play favorites, socialize with families making other students the outsiders. Only AL students are paid attention to and encouraged to successed."

    "I have to say Cresskill High School was great. The attention and effort from the teachers and the staff in general was phenonmenal. Definetly a tier 1 public high school. I am attending great universities, I have military experience, and a great job. CHS was a great experience."

    "Nice school, but being a small school makes very difficult for advanced students to get AP classes like Calculus BC or Spanish Lit. Guidance Office offer no help for those students, nor a good guidance to get to the best colleges. Sports are good."
