Favorite subject at CRLS
AP Calculus

Why is it your favorite subject?
AP Calculus is my favorite subject because it has pushed me to develop skills that I hadn't had before. I have had to work to develop good studying skills to really understand the content of the class. I also enjoyed the challenge that the course had brought me.

Favorite CRLS Staff Person
Ms. Yvette Jackson

What makes that staff person so special?

Ms. Yvette Jackson has really made my high school experience the best it could have possibly been. She has always been someone I could count on and pushed me to do my best with everything I did. Yvette gave me a great school environment and made me feel like I was her own, she became my second mom. I couldn't have asked for anyone better to be by my side throughout these 4 years.
