The school sports facilities and sports program like basketball are wonderful. Everyone shows up for the basketball games, football and homecoming games. There's lot of school spirit here during our wonderful pep rally's, senior week, NJROTC week and plenty more. Students often get rewarded with trophies, metals, ribbons and accessories on their letterman jackets. The school staff really shows gratitude and appreciation for those students who may get injured while playing the sport. The sport scene is what everyone looks forward to, especially basketball. We cheer our school on 110 percent of the way.

I have mirror image dyslexia. The teachers at cross creek helped me out with my special needs to all levels. By providing reading tools like dictionaries, extra study time, tutoring, and help with any subject I was struggling in, they helped me pass my classes. The teachers are well educated in their field of teaching. Some of the teachers are college professors. They also get to know their students well. How the students home life is,and what kind of learning technique the students use. Some teachers will even email the assignments you have missed, they will also text you if you need help with homework. The teachers up date grades just about every day to let you see what you made. so you can keep up with you grade point average.

There are many security officers at the school during school hours. Students and faculty go through drills for certain codes each month. The school provides $1 physicals for students interested in trying out for sports. The nurse is at the school on call. Bullying is rare at the school, and is handled very seriously. The school is a very good school due to the fact that they do random sweeps that include classrooms and cars to ensure that there are no weapons or drugs on campus. The health requirements are outstanding for the students.
