    Health & Safety: There was never a time where I felt unsafe at school. There were always police men on duty and they would be in the main office if anything came up and they had to go to a classroom.

    Extracurriculars: The extracurricular activities that take place at the school gets more students involved after school. Some students could not participate For example, I wasn't able to participate in any after school activities because I started working my sophomore year and had to work after school.

    Teachers: For example, I was enrolled in pre calculus and I struggled a lot and my one teacher took the time to really help me out and get me to understand. It came to a point where I was spending a couple hours a night on practicing the work. When I was spending time on this I just was not understanding the information. My teacher helped me out as much as he could, but I just wasn't understanding the material.

    Teachers: Out of my three years of attending Crown Point High School most of my teachers go above and beyond to enhance my education. Any time I need extra assistance my teachers make sure that they are available when I need them. If any of my teachers have a teaching style that does not work for me I always go to them before or after class to seek for help. Working with my teachers one on one really helps me to understand difficult concepts. Also my teachers are usually pretty fast when grading and they always give me excellent feed back.
