24 Parent Reviews for Cheyenne Mountain High School

What a disappointment! The faculty at CMHS is simply put unengaged and don't care. Poor communication, lack of accountability, poor teacher guidance and its all okay with them. The root....they just don't care. I went to this school as a kid, played sports, and had decent grades. Unfortunately the ...  Read more

I am very impressed with this school's academic, sport and other activities achievements. My son is very proud of being a member of this school. Yes, it is very competitive, however the support form school teachers and staffs is unthinkable. All the members in the school seem to have one and only one ...  Read more

My biggest problem is the school does not care about the kids. They have a teacher that gets multiple complaints but they do nothing and they have no option because she is the only one that teaches that class and it is a required class for all students to graduate. The principle and dean support her ...  Read more

Raised in the Cheyenne System and graduated from the High School. It is a wonderful school that stresses excellence in everything from academics to sports to fine arts. It's also the only school I'll consider sending my own children to.

This school prides itself on being a college prep school. I graduated ready for college and my college classes were very easy for me. If you want a dumbed down high school send your kids to Harrison. They can train to be Walmart employees,

As a parent of a highly successful student and one with special needs (asperger's), we felt both needs were met through CM. Through the ...  Read more

Most blaring problem is there is NO SCHOOL BUS -at all- and the public bus will not take the kids either. So you have to do all the transportation to a public shool. Do not expect them to contact you if your kid gets behind. They don't care. It is run like a university, expecting 14 year olds to take ...  Read more

My four brothers and I graduated from Cheyenne, kindergarten through 12th. The school was amazing when we were there so my husband and I decided that our kids should experience the excellent education that the 5 of us received. How wrong we were! The school teaches to the top 9%, if you are not in ...  Read more

I have had three children attend CMHS. Two were classic over achievers and they excelled. One of my children, however, has severe ADHD and needed a lot of assistance. I found both the administration and the teachers seriously lacking in understanding and the ability to handle a child with educational ...  Read more

If you have a child that begins to struggle, you won't hear about it from a teacher or guidance counselor. You'll first learn of it from a progress report or a report card; even though emails and telephone numbers are readily available to the teachers. The administration advises you to monitor the ...  Read more
