This school really sucks, ever since I was enrolled into this school from being a private school I went downhill. If you want to save your kids from failure don't send them here

Sadly the school district continues to have unjust practices in educating African American students. The problems starts in elementary school and increases through middle school into high school. By 4th grade the students are segregated in math and English classes base on a district provided test - ...  Read more

Although the stats look great for this school - don't be fooled !! Racial inequities are all too common!

I have had the opportunity to get to know the administrators of the Cheltenham High School and worked with them very closely. They have gone out of their way to help me in any way they can. I recently enrolled my 16-year-old kid at the CHS offices and I again was very impressed with the professionalism ...  Read more

This is a singular place. Even if he sentiment isn't always matched by the administration, CHS students and faculty cherish the extraordinary learning that takes place within these walls, inside and beyond the classroom. CHS graduates leave equipped with exceptional emotional and intellectual maturity ...  Read more
