"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!"
"I came to CPHS from a tiny private school where I was friends with everybody, to this huge school with 2500 other kids. Although it was intimidating and hard at first, I've grown to love it. A lot of reviews have reprimanded CPHS for many of the students' materialistic views and low moral standards, but the reality is that anyone can find friends who are not like that. Anyone can find a niche where their talents and interests can develop and they will be valued, if only they try. Teachers here care about our success and will go the extra mile to help. There's no denying that there are always those students who seem "fake" and materialistic, but there's so much more to CPHS than that group. I'll be a senior this fall, and when I graduate, I'll be forever grateful to Crown Point HS for the opportunities for growth and preparation for my future that it has given through friends, teachers and the positive atmosphere."
