    Crawford Central Schools all practice "Ability Grouping" which is a sneeky way of "Tracking" students. If your child is not a straight A student & not competing in the top 10% of his/her class then he/she will not prosper in this type of education system partly because the expectations of these students by the teachers are low so the teachers don't challenge them the way teachers should. Also the AP classes have the better more experienced teachers while everybody else winds up with the "newbies" & "paycheck teachers". These schools would be better if they quit spending all the money on the teacher's salaries benefits & pensions. Crawford Central has the highest average paid teachers salaries in PA while it has one of the lowest per child spending rates. Most of the average & below average students don't even have books to bring home while the AP students do. Also in order to get a teaching position in the Meadville area one has to be either "related" or "know" someone. Good teachers from outside the area "need not apply." Look up "Ability grouping" & "Crawford Central School District" at Wikipedia & you will learn tons more about it & the overall effect.

    A party school. Kids are poorly behaved lots of negative peer pressure. No academic rigor to be found my child was graded on 1)showing up 2) class participation and 3) homework whether it was correct or not. Tests could be retaken or points could be added to the score for completing busy work. Principal is very available but the culture of underachievement low expectations and negative social pressure is too pervasive.

    This is an awful high school. Student fights break out continually and the police are called to the school almost daily. Getting the administration to protect students like I had to do for my son was impossible. My son also has special needs and the school is ill-equipped to provide services.

    I think that Meadville is the best school that I have ever went to. They have excellent teachers that actually help you and want you to succeed!
