    Overall Experience: My experience at Cross Creek is very boring. I would rather attend a different school but I live too close by to attend a different one. I wish things were a lot different, the only thing I appreciate is that the graduation rate is phenomenal.

    Health & Safety: Our school is very safe but not excessively overprotective. The nurse leaves at 11:45 so if you just so happen to get an injury after lunch, you might as well go home. As for the drugs, they are not permitted, if seen with drugs, alcohol or any thing else of that nature, you're suspended for quite some time. I just so happen to know a couple of people that has been drunk, or smoked once or twice in their life.

    Food: School lunch for me is not so great. One, there's no flavor in the food, it's quite plain and bland and often times they serve the same food from the day before. The lunch staff would literally give you five flimsy fries after several hours of learning. As high school students, our privileges are little to none. Two, We don't have a snack machine, they took the one we did have out of the school for good but it was only operated after school hours, which wasn't so smart because students would miss their bus trying to get snacks. Most students do not like school lunch, I surely don't.

    Administration & Policies: Violence of any sort, including bullying, fighting, purposely injuring, school wide humiliation or verbal humiliation is NOT aloud in any form. The staff members here at Cross Creek try their best to stop any violence that goes on as best as they can. The staff members are very strict about things like that and if done anyway by a student, it will result in expulsion, In school detention (ISS), out of school detention (OSS) or after school detention.

    Sports & Fitness: 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.
