Great Guidance Department, cares about students, even the average student. My son was not a great student, but they helped us find a decent college for him where he is now doing well, studying something he really loves. Did not like the old principal at all, glad he is gone. Hopefully new one can change ...  Read more

I think my child has a thoughtful curriculum and there are a number of non-athletic interests supported.

I also agree that the math department at this school is sadly lacking. They actually behave as if they are a big joke. One math teacher my child had made discouraging remarks to his students on a regular basis. This was by way of testing their sense of humor. Math SAT scores show the details, however ...  Read more

This school is a total joke. The administration fails to recognize the schools widespread drug and alcohol problem. It's block scheduling is so backwards beyond belief, its a wonder more kids don't leave. The AP courses offered are child's play compared to other states. The school has failed to take ...  Read more

I must agree that the math department could use help--our older daughter had to have pier tutoring to get through Algebra 2 (which raised her grade from a D to an A because the ...  Read more

Overall, good school. AP program is great for kids who want to excel, but the math department is awful. It is a running joke at CHS that there are very few good math teachers here. The marching band is still one of the best and athletics are strong. I've been a student here for three years, and I don't ...  Read more

This is the best school it provides and excells in education not to mention the extreme sports program. Definitly a 5 star school

I am currently a student at CHS. The school is great. It's well funded, has friendly teachers that have a passion for what they do, and the vast majority of students care about how well they succeed. The rules, I have to say, are very strict and the punishments are harsh. The school may be too competitive ...  Read more
