    Overall Experience: I like the school, and this school is most unique in the way it truly does bring a community together. You could be walking around the Square with a Crown Point shirt on and most people would probably ask you about a recent game or fund raising event. I would not want to change going to this school if I could do it all again, I actually believe I should have taken more advantage of what they were giving at the school. It truly is a great school.

    Food: I overall like what they serve over at Crown Point, I like that they boost healthier options and require a fruit or vegetable, it actually got me to try out broccoli and eat my long time favorites, carrots. I like he food system, it's good.

    Administration & Policies: I think our School Administration is good, although sometimes they handle certain situations too harshly. Although, I also would not want to trade it in for an administration that could care less about its' students behavior. A lot of my female peers think that the dress -code is ridiculous and I find it quite suitable for us to have the dress code that we do. Our guidance counselors should be more of guidance and less of putting in scores on the computer and giving us a website to go on. I like face to face talking, and I like going through something I don't fully understand with someone who does.

    Sports & Fitness: I love the sports, all around and we are a very "Support the football team even if you don't know what a football is" school. The weight/cardio room is available to all students before and after school and it's even open to the community. I like this feature about the school also (not just for my future summer body), but because it truly is convenient. There is an enormous fan support at CPHS, going to a football game in 23 degrees is a hobby out here.

    Teachers: A lot of students will say that some teachers do a horrible job at teaching, or some take it too seriously, but I love that Crown Point gives the students' an almost college feel. I think that having laid back teachers, and then having strict teachers both being incorporated in one schedule is good for us lazy teenagers. We have to learn that we need to work for our grades, godd or bad teacher, and I like that Crown Point, without knowing it, does that.
