  • Awesome school. Great class choices, friendly staff, teachers and faculty. A little packed but I have no problem going from one side to the other for my class and being on time. There are a few teachers that are grouches just like every other school has. Amazing school.

  • This school is WAY over populated!!!!! We have 5 elementary schools and 2 middle schools and then we only have one yes 1 high school!!! We cram enough kids to fill five schools all into one!!! And then we wonder why the kids are tardy or why they can not focus. UMM a sardine has more room in its can than the kids have in class or even better just try to walk down the hall between classes!!! We need atleast one more high school. With the lottery and our state taxes that are being raised every two months you would think we could give our children a safe healthy enviroment to learn in!! Get real and give our kids a shot at a future!!!

  • Crestview High School has a good selection of classes, as far as ap, honors, and choice programs go. The teachers vary. Some are good at their jobs and actually teach students, while others are rude and don't help us learn the material.
    The discipline policies are a bit extreme. I understand that students shouldn't use their phones during school hours, but giving automatic Saturday school for that is a little ridiculous. Skipping school has become a problem, but that's the students choice. If they choose to not go to school and end up failing, that's their fault.

  • This is school is horrible. i should know, I go there. They are no good teachers and the staff is so rude. The counselors even put you down. If you're not a peppy little cheerleader, or a jock then you're basically scum. I am so happy this is my last year at Crestview High.

  • This school has a great curriculum, but the teachers are extremly rude and the rules and policies that they have are way too harsh. You are only allowed nine absences per semestre, and if you have more, then you have to take a compentency exam and pass. If you don't, you fail. It doesn't matter if a tragedy has struck the family or if you were in the hospital; if you miss more then nine days, you are screwed. The tardy system is horrible, and the school is too small for the students. The homework is ridiculous, teachers don't care at all, and the principal is a bit off.

  • Nice Class choices there but the staff is rude in fact they treat children like they attend some type of prison The Tardy Policy is very harsh a child is tardy as soon as the bell rings even if its a second after or they walk in the door as the bell is ringing and after 6 they get suspended it don't matter the reason you could have a serious tragedy and you would not be excused at CHS in fact one of my children was suspended and the weather was bad that morning that is why they got there as the bell was ringing but trust me you will not be notified until a week late by letter
