"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."
"This is the best school ever!! The teachers really care and the environment is great. Of course there is always going to be the snobby kids and occasional bullying but it is nothing compared to the other high schools in this area, I couldn't ask for a better school!"
"Our family moved from Gary to Crown Point this summer and we could not be happier for the great education this school has provided for our child. We loved Gary and lived there all of our lives but we were tired of failing schools and dangerous surroundings and wanted much better for our children. We did not want to move further from our jobs and the South Shore, but enough was enough. The offerings at CPHS are fantastic! There are so many clubs and activities for the kids and family to enjoy and the people here really do care about their schools. The only downside is that administration does not seem very accessible when needed. However, no place is perfect. Overall, this is a great investment for our children's future. Who says that you can no longer find great schools in great middle class communities? We found it and we will encourage some friends and family to consider this area if they plan to move! Keep up the good work CP!"
