I went to 3 high schools my freshman year and CHS was by far the worst of them all. I moved from Nov. of my 8th grade year until Jan. of my freshman year( I would have started sooner but they wouldn't take me til second semester).

We feel as if the mentality is if you don't fit the mold then you need to leave.

Advanced social studies department is top notch. Mr. Neiffer, Mr. Partridge, and Mr. Simms are some of the best AP social studies teachers out there. Although the math department in general is lacking, Mr. Peterson more than makes up for it with the advanced Calculus classes. Bad mentality overall ...  Read more

Capital High School has a lot of work to do until I would consider it an excellent school. I currently attend CHS and numerous things bug me about it, especially when it's compared to the other high school in Helena. There is no individuality or creativity encouragement. Classes should help a child grow ...  Read more

I am very pleased with the leadership at Capital. Getting kids involved and keeping them involved is a priority in this school. My student knows his progress on a daily basis, which encourages him to keep trying. The extra curricular activities have helped him acclimate to high school. In my opinion, ...  Read more

Capital High fosters an unpleasant and hostile learning environment that does not promote individuality or cultivate critical thinking skills in any way. While some teahcers are dedicated to the advancement of their students, the majority do not respect or encourage their students. Teachers who are there ...  Read more

The teachers seem to allow students to fail and do not try to nurture them back to a passing grade. Of course this is not all the teachers fault, the student population has always been brutal and uncaring for the safety of other students. I also believe that the school is drug infested because my son ...  Read more
