"I didn't make it to the graduation ceremony and my experience in picking up my diploma from the office was a horrible one thanks to the school principal at the time (early '70's). I was told by the office attendant that the principal had to present me with my diploma. He handed it to me and instead of a "congratulations!" I got a "That takes care of that comment" from him. Very nice! Had I been older and more mature, I would have had a lot of comebacks for this ignorant man."
"Crown Point High School is an outstanding public school. It is staffed by great teachers, administrators, and support staff. The school has been the recipient of many awards in state and nationally, including Best High Schools by US News and World Report; America's Most Challenging High Schools by The Washington Post; and Exemplary Grade "A" and Four Star school by Indiana Department of Education. The school is also accredited by AdvancedED Worlwide, an institution advancing excellence in education around the world. Crown Point High School consistently produces many ACT and SAT scholars and a large proportion of the student body are admitted to colleges and universities, both local and national. For example, my own daughter and five of her closest friends have been admitted to the University of Southern California (Resident Honors Program), Indiana University, Ball State University, Northwestern, and Tulane. Their success, as well as many, many others, can be attributed to knowledgeable and caring teachers, challenging classes, the latest in innovative programs, a supportive community, and a positive, hard working, goal oriented student body."
"I only attended this school for one year, and I must say, I enjoyed my time here. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because there's barely any diversity, and there are even some racist & stereotypical students that make rude comments that can allow minorities to feel uncomfortable. But those ignorant students weren't my main concern. My main focus was to get an education, and my outstanding teachers made that possible. Not only were there great teachers, but the school itself was just a beautiful place to come to everyday. Personally, I like being able to go to a school that's not raggedy. The place was always clean and had an updated look. Also the lunch was great and worth paying for. The supplies for making sandwiches (bread, lettuce, tomato) were ALWAYS fresh. I'm glad I had the chance to attend this school."
"Being a graduate from CPHS may make this post seem biased, or that my opinions are clouded, but believe me when I say CPHS, overall, is an excellent school. Academically speaking, it's brilliant. The teachers are personable, but professional, and exude sincerity in their attempt to teach. Socially speaking, the student body, although not entirely diverse in ethnicity, are diverse in personality, family income level, and interests. It's easy to find friends at this school whom you share similarities and interests. I was a little shocked when I saw a comment saying the student here are horrible, mean, rude, judgmental and materialistic, because you'll find students like that in any school. You'll find people like that in the life, daily. It's a bit naive to think all of the students fit that accusation. Having graduated and gone to college, I can say that some of the nicest people I've met went to CPHS, and aren't in the least, mean, rude, judgmental or materialistic. Overall, CPHS is an excellent school, and it prepared me for college past my expectations, and made me feel safe, liked, and accepted while attending the school."
"Disappointed that the school advertised it was in the top 2000 ranked for 2013 in US News and World Report. It isn't. Even the DailyBeast took down the misprint. Crown Point's information is listed along with every other public high school in the US so that US News could show their methodology and we could compare this high school to those that did make the top 2000."
